LabEPMA Artist's Talk With Abel Saucedo

El Paso  multi-media artist Abel Saucedo has committed himself to producing art that speaks to contemporary cultural and political issues, especially as they relate to the local US-Mexico border. His new work created for LabEPMA - Tunnel Runner - comments on the politics that hamper international migration at a time when millions of refugees worldwide seek survival and a better life. Saucedo's mixed-media assemblage utilizes actual shoe-store display racks combined with footwear collected from immigrants who have made the dangerous crossing from Mexico into the United States.
