Estamos Buscando A – Border Wall Installation

Museum of Contemporary Art – Tucson, Tucson, Arizona

October 7 – December 31, 2017

.

“A slice of the border wall moves north this fall and occupies the Museum of Contemporary Art. Bisecting MOCA’s Great Hall – which once housed the city’s fire engines – the 64-foot, 12-foot-high wall is the real thing: it once severed California from Baja California. After the Border Patrol discarded that stretch of rusted wall for something even bigger and uglier, artist Paul Turounet salvaged a chunk and turned it into tortured art.”

“In the installation, “Estamos Buscando A” (We’re Looking For … ), his repurposed wall will split the gallery in two, mirroring the border divide between the U.S. and Mexico. Dirt and rocks and migrant belongings will be scattered across the floor. Photos of real-life migrants, printed on sparkly aluminum, will hang on the metal barrier, glowing like retablos in a church.”
