2023 | Artist Talk with Juventino Aranda

Artist Talk with Juventino Aranda
Thursday, February 23, 4:30 p.m.
Fine Arts Auditorium
Livestreamed via Zoom Webinar

Join us for a Lecture with artist Juventino Aranda!

On Thursday, February 23 at 4:30 pm, artist Juventino Aranda will be giving a public talk in the Fine Arts Auditorium about his work in the exhibition  Juventino Aranda: Esperé Mucho Tiempo Pa Ver. Aranda’s work expresses a search for identity and much of his recent work draws on family history and particularities of his childhood. Never fully ascribing to one cultural category, his artwork blends and manipulates the categories of painting and sculpture, craft and high art, and manufacturing and the handmade, as well as the formal and conceptual strategies of post-minimalist artists. Talk is free and open to the public.

2023 | Foley Institute Lecture with HT94 Curator & Anthropologist Jason De León

The Land of Open Graves:
Raising Awareness about Migrant Life and Death along the US/Mexico Border

Foley Institute Lecture with
HT94 Curator & Anthropologist Jason De León
Thursday, March 2, 12:00-1:00 p.m.
In Person: Foley Speaker’s Room, 308 Bryan Hall
Livestreamed: Link forthcoming

Join us for a Lecture with UCLA anthropologist Jason De León!

On Thursday, March 2nd at 12:00pm, anthropologist Jason De León will offer a lecture through the Foley Institute titled “The Land of Open Graves: Raising Awareness about Migrant Life and Death along the US/Mexico Border.” Since the mid-1990s, the U.S. federal government has relied on a border enforcement strategy known as “Prevention Through Deterrence.” Using various security infrastructure and techniques of surveillance, this strategy funnels undocumented migrants towards remote and rugged terrain such as the Sonoran Desert of Arizona with the hope that mountain ranges, extreme temperatures, and other “natural” obstacles will deter people from unauthorized entry. Since the 1990’s, thousands of people have died as a result of this policy. In this talk De León will discuss the politics of migrant death in Arizona, describe the ongoing global exhibition Hostile Terrain 94 (HT94) that seeks to raise awareness about this issue, and highlight the new collaboration between the Undocumented Migration Project and the Colibrí Center for Human Rights. Hostile Terrain 94 is on view at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU from January 17-March 11, 2023.

Jason De León is Executive Director of the Undocumented Migration Project and the Colibrí Center for Human Rights, a 501(c)(3) research, arts, and education collective focused on raising awareness about issues related to migration and assisting families of missing migrants. De León is also Professor of Anthropology and Chicana, Chicano, and Central American Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. He is the author of the award-winning book The Land of Open Graves: Living and Dying on the Migrant Trail and a 2017 MacArthur Fellow.

2023 | Hostile Terrain 94 Workshop

Hostile Terrain 94 Workshop
Tuesday, February 21, 12:00-1:30 p.m.
Pavilion Gallery, Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU

Register for this workshop on the Provost’s HT94 Website (registration will open in January 2023).

Join us for a public workshop about Hostile Terrain 94, a participatory exhibition from the Undocumented Migration Project. Co-sponsored by the Center for Arts and Humanities, College of Arts and Sciences, Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU (JSMA), and the Office of the Provost, Hostile Terrain 94 (HT94) is an interactive exhibition comprised of approximately 3,800 handwritten toe tags representing migrants who died trying to cross the Sonoran Desert in Arizona between the mid-1990s and 2019. The physical act of writing out the names and information for the dead invites participants to reflect, witness and stand in solidarity with those who have lost their lives in search of a better one.

The on-going installation of this project will take place at the Schnitzer Museum in January-March 2023, with toe tags filled out by members of our local community. We are seeking university and community-based groups—student and faculty organizations, service groups, classes, etc.—who would like to participate in this intentional activity during Winter 2023. Each workshop will include time at the end to reflect on emotions related to and implications of the exhibition.

Additional workshops and activities for HT94 are taking place on the WSU campus. Visit the Provost’s Hostile Terrain 94 website for updates on these opportunities, and to register for workshops. If you are interested in scheduling a private workshop for your group or class, please contact wsu.hostileterrain94@wsu.edu.

Our community’s engagement with Hostile Terrain 94 will culminate March 2, 2023, when HT94 founder and anthropologist Jason De León visits the WSU Pullman campus for a series of programs and events.
