CANCELED Exhibition Opening Lecture and Reception for "Miracles on the Border: Retablos of Mexican Migrants to the United States"

When: Saturday, April 18, 2020, 4:00pm

Where: Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center & Taylor Hall 102

Retablos are thank-you notes to the heavens dedicated to Christ, the Virgin, or saints to consecrate a miraculous event. The votives in this exhibition—spanning the entirety of the twentieth century—were offered by Mexican migrants and their families to commemorate the dangers of crossing the border and living in the United States. Filled with emotive detail, they eloquently express subjects of greatest concern to the migrants, such as the difficulty of finding work or falling sick in a foreign land and the relief of returning home.

At 4:00pm there will be a reception in the Art Center Atrium and an opportunity to view the exhibition. Then at 5:30pm, Jorge Durand and Douglas S. Massey will give a joint lecture in Taylor Hall 102. Durand is a professor of Social Anthropology at the University of Guadalajara (Mexico), and Massey is a professor of Sociology and Public Affairs, with a joint appointment in the Woodrow Wilson School, at Princeton University (US). They co-direct the Mexican Migration Project (MMP), a binational research effort created in 1982 by an interdisciplinary team of researchers to further our understanding of the complex process of Mexican migration to the United States.
