This was a virtual event streamed on MASS MoCA’s YouTube channel. Watch a recording of the discussion below:

Exhibiting artist Marcos Ramírez ERRE is joined in conversation by his two brothers: poet and visual artist Omar Pimienta and Professor Juan Carlos Ramírez-Pimienta, an expert on border culture, as well as the narcocorrido—a genre of ballad inspired by the drug trade. Together they share their intimate knowledge of transnationality and the rich culture of the border region, bringing us a fuller picture of the USA-Mexico border and its development since the 80s through family stories from the Colonia Libertad neighborhood of Tijuana and their varied artistic and academic studies.

Marcos Ramírez ERRE’s exhibition THEM AND US / ELLOS Y NOSOTROS is on view now through October 24, 2021. Explore in person or virtually through a 3D gallery tour.
