Lieja Quintanar is undertaking a project that traces a genealogy of collective artistic practices responding to border violence in Mexico and Central America, and that also examines the ramifications of such violence in US immigrant destination cities like San Diego, El Paso, and Los Angeles. Lieja Quintanar will travel to specific border cities where she will meet with and interview emerging and mid-career artists as well as collectives, curators, academics, activists and journalists, culminating in a bilingual publication, public programs, and an exhibition.

“The Foundation’s commitment to supporting artists by funding the institutions that incubate, encourage, exhibit and critically engage their work is unwavering. Non-profit arts organizations face profound challenges due to the political, economic, social and cultural upheavals of our current moment. At the same time, and more than ever, artists need the supportive community and creative encouragement that these organizations provide.”
Joel Wachs, President
