LabEPMA - Abel Saucedo

Time: 9:00 a.m. Cost: Free Brief Description: Tunnel Runner, a new work created for LabEPMA by El Paso artist Abel Saucedo, comments on the contemporary politics of border control in an age when millions of refugees attempt to migrate for survival and a better life. Saucedo’s mixed-media assemblage utilizes actual shoe store display racks combined with the collected footwear of immigrants who have crossed into the United States through the Mexican border. Saucedo depicts everyday situations to speak out about social, cultural, and political issues surrounding the binational border experience.
