Diane Fellows will discuss the exhibition, Contesting and Bridging Boundaries and Borders: the US-Mexico Indigenous and Migration Experience, a collaborative exhibition on view during the Biennale Architettura 2023 in Venice, Italy. Through immersive video, paintings, mural, and performance, the installation explores the lives of border communities along the US–Mexico Border of the Rio Grande. Indigenous languages and migration narratives, border landscapes and personal stories of crossing or the inability to cross the US–Mexico border are experienced.

Artists: Diane Fellows (Miami University, Dept. Architecture and Interior Design), Adrian Jésus Falcon (Falcon Art Center Foundation, Del Rio, TX), Diana Lizbeth Zuñiga Hernandez (Global Indigenous collective, Hidalgo, Mexico), Gion DeFrancesco (Miami University, Dept. of Theatre) and Miami University Architecture Studios: Boundaries, Borders and the Imaginary 2021 and 2023.
