"The Border Crossed Us: Tour the US-Mexico Border in the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts" by Catherine D’Ignazio
Amherst, MA
April 20 - May 1

What happens when we divide a territory that the community imagines as contiguous? How does the international border in Arizona, seemingly remote from a college campus in New England, touch all of our lives here?

"The Border Crossed Us" is a temporary public art installation by the Institute for Infinitely Small Things. From April 20 to May 1, the UMass Amherst campus will be divided along its North-South boundary by a to-scale photographic replica of the vehicle fence that runs along the international boundary in southern Arizona. The particular stretch of fence being represented was erected in 2007 by Homeland Security and now divides the Tohono O'odham Nation and the second largest Native American reservation in the US into two parts.
