Join Aisla Gallery at the SOMArts Cultural Center Thursday June 22 from 8 pm – 11:11 p.m. Chocolate and Art Show, Featuring Aisla’s Series : “Borderwall: an Epic Gematrailure”
Inspiration “Borderwall: Design and Violence”
….design a wall that features a life-saving water collection system, a solar farm, a treatment plant for waste water from the New River, a bi-national library.…
The world needs not a useless wall, but cleaner water, universal access to education, and renewable energy. This will solve the problem rather than put it into parentheses. Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello know that cruel borders and empty violence must be put to rest. They dream not of a utopia—like the time of Arthurian legends in which Don Quixote lived—but of the end of the absurdity of a selectively porous border that only produces death and suffering. The artistic utopia of the wall converted into a place of light and transparency, without the shadow of hate, shows that another world is possible and invites us to fight for change.
