Borders and Boundaries: An Art-Fueled Film Screening of Amarillo

November 21, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Join the Boards Executive Director, Betsey Brock, and Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art Executive Director, Robin Held, for a screening of TEATRO LÍNEA DE SOMBRA’s performance of Amarillo. A man departs for the US–Mexican border and vanishes before reaching his destination: Amarillo, Texas. Through stunning projected images, bilingual monologues, and a sea of displaced objects and natural elements, the film reconstructs his journey in a multimedia performance that travels imagined landscapes of both geography and cultural identity. Amarillo touches on the complex nature of the individual and national identity in a time of exodus—both for those who leave and for those who are left behind. The screening of the film will be followed by a conversation with Brock and Held about the performance, art as a launch pad for civic discourse, and trends in performance and streaming technologies. Sponsored by the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art.
