"One to Another"

Formed in 2007 by educator Ryan Sprott and artist Jason Reed in the tiny Texas town of Big Lake, Borderland Collective identifies as “a long-term art and education project that utilizes collaborations between artists, educators, youth and community members to engage complex issues and build space for diverse perspectives, meaningful dialogue and modes of creation and reflection.” Over the past decade, the ever-evolving group has worked with hundreds of participants on challenging, enlightening and format-busting projects such as “Wurzbach Manor” (which shed light on three displaced families — one from Burma, one from Tanzania and one from New Orleans — living in the same San Antonio apartment complex), “Border-land” (which enlisted students from the International School of the Americas to unpack serious issues surrounding the U.S.-Mexico border via oral histories, journaling, photography and various forms of creative expression) and “Northern Triangle” (a still-touring 2014 exhibition exploring the Central American refugee crisis, the war on drugs, human trafficking and deportation — all through the historical lens of complicated relations between the U.S. and El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras). Led by artists Mark Menjivar, Molly Sherman and Jason Reed, Borderland Collective’s new Artpace exhibition “One to Another” is centered around migration stories collected across the country but also assembles forensic archives, sound and video installations, United Nations hearings and an actual refugee housing unit (created by the nonprofit Better Shelter) to encourage viewers to “contemplate their own familial migration stories within the context of larger migration narratives.”
