Trotando Pasos Ajenos is an art and cultural exhibit that features 12 interactive educational installments designed to appeal to a wide audience that focus on regional issues of justice inequality as they pertain to identity, environment, history, immigration, law, and faith. It also provides an opportunity to come together for an interactive experience that promotes awareness and comprehension of these issues.
Understanding these issues helps our community arrive at ways to lessen inequalities and their consequences – especially in the borderlands.
We invite you to explore a series of regional social justice topics, create a dialogue, and approach these topics with a new understanding.
The exhibit was curated by Dr. Dulcinea Lara, Dr. Nicholas Natividad professors at NMSU’s department of Criminal justice who specialize on issues of social justice in crime and law. The exhibit designer is artist and filmmaker Daniel Aguilar. Programing for the exhibit includes a documentary screening titled “Fruits of our Labor” by Daniel Aguilar as well as a lecture series, and additional programing for all ages.
The exhibit will run from October 6 to January 6, 2018. Opening reception is Friday, October 6 from 5 pm to 8 pm.
