A Nation of Fear: A Panel Discussion

I was asked to be on a panel discussion hosted during the opening reception for the exhibition A Nation of Fear, Center Space Project that examined the current wave of violence in Mexico, its causes, and the widespread social and political effects, both in Mexico and the U.S. Moderated by Luis Vargas-Santiago, PhD candidate in Art History at The University of Texas at Austin, this discussion was fueled by the issues confronted by exhibiting artists Miguel Aragón, Adriana Corral, and Raymundo Delgadillo. Other discussants include Dr. Martha Menchaca, author of Naturalizing Mexican Immigrants: A Texas History; Dr. Fred Valdez Jr., Director of the Mesoamerican Archaeological Research Laboratory at The University of Texas at Austin Pickle Research Campus.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition A Nation of Fear on view at the VAC October 19 – November 10, 2012.
