Through the works of five contemporary artists, the exhibition explores the recurring issues of immigration, border relations and labor practices that have persisted throughout U.S. history and remain timely today. Artists featured are Andrea Bowers, Margarita Cabrera, Tony de los Reyes, Zhi Lin and Hung Liu. This exhibition was conceived by Nancy Tom and is guest-curated by Chip Tom with support from Columbia College Chicago, the Los Angeles County Arts Commission and Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
