Trotando Pasos Ajenos: Social Justice and Inequalities in the Borderlands Exhibit, Opens Oct. 6

September 26, 2017

Trotando Pasos Ajenos is an art and cultural exhibit that features 12 interactive
educational installments designed to appeal to a wide audience that focus on
regional issues of justice inequality as they pertain to identity, environment,
history, immigration, law, and faith. It also provides an opportunity to come
together for an interactive experience that promotes awareness and comprehension
of these issues.

Understanding these issues helps our community arrive at ways to lessen
inequalities and their consequences – especially in the borderlands.

We invite you to explore a series of regional social justice topics, create a dialogue,
and approach these topics with a new understanding.

The exhibit was curated by Dr. Dulcinea Lara, Dr. Nicholas Natividad professors at
NMSU’s department of Criminal justice who specialize on issues of social justice in
crime and law. The exhibit designer is artist and filmmaker Daniel Aguilar.
Programing for the exhibit includes a documentary screening titled “Fruits of our
Labor” by Daniel Aguilar as well as a lecture series, and additional programing for
all ages.

The exhibit will run from October 6 to January 6, 2018. Opening reception is Friday,
October 6 from 5 pm to 8 pm.

Admission is free to the Branigan Cultural Center, located at 501 North Main Street.
The museum is open Tuesday through Friday from 10am to 4:30pm, and Saturday
from 9am to 4:30pm. For additional information, visit the website at museums.las-
