La Frontera Fluida (The Fluid Border)


TAMI is proud to present its newest web exhibit, LA FRONTERA FLUIDA (THE FLUID BORDER). The Texas borderlands are an exceedingly varied and evolving space, one of perpetual conflict and social tension, bi-national negotiation and cooperation, and rich cultural diversity and heritage. At a time when issues like immigration and border security are of increasing political prominence, we must take a closer look at the region and the intersecting layers of discourse that shape its complex history. LA FRONTERA FLUIDA explores the Texas borderlands through its representation on film, drawing from newsreels, documentaries, educational films, and home movies to examine not only the varied experiences of its residents but also its place within the mythology of Texas.
