Without Borders / Sin Fronteras
Artbound visits Kathy Kobayashi who discusses the Shades of L.A. photography archive at the Downtown L.A. Library, which explores community based photos illuminating diversity in Southern California. Then, Ana Serrano shows us her cardboard-constructed pieces based on her cultural explorations around Los Angeles. Next, we travel to Mexicali Rose, an artist organization in Mexicali, where locals are encouraged to create art to galvanize community involvement. We also witness performances in Guatemala from Teatro Jornalero Sin Fronteras (Day Labor Theater Without Borders) whose work engages people who have been displaced and deported to Guatemala.
