Thursday, 16 November 2017 // 5-8PM

Otro Mundo Nos Espera [Another World Awaits Us] speaks from the nearness of afar, from the space in-between, providing glimpses of other worlds and other lives lived along, across, and in spite of borders.

Celebrate the exhibition opening at Downtown at Sundown, from 5-8 PM on Thursday, November 16. The exhibition will remain on view at MCASD Downtown from November 16, 2017 through January 18, 2018.

Otro Mundo Nos Espera [Another World Awaits Us] features collaborative works and documentation of public interventions produced through a series of workshops facilitated by Cog•nate Collective with students in the San Diego State University Chicana/Chicano Studies program in the Spring and Fall 2017 semesters as part of MCASD’s Millennial Engagement initiative.

Using artwork from the permanent collection and recent exhibitions as a point of departure, students considered the role cultural production plays in fomenting political dialogue, honing in specifically on the ways science fiction could be mobilized to contemplate the San Diego/Tijuana border region and (re)examine the divides that separate (and connect) “us” from “them.”

The audio, images, and objects produced through the various workshops and interventions that took place at the San Ysidro Port of Entry, Playas de Tijuana, Border Field State Park, SDSU, and MCASD will be on view
Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego
