516 Arts (WEBSITE)

MIGRATORY, created by Mexico City artist Minerva Cuevas as part of her “International Understanding Foundation,” was developed as a conceptual structure highlighting solidarity networks and creative environments in El Paso and Ciudad Juárez. The artworks in the exhibition are created by multiple invited artists, bringing together a mural in the gallery, prints, video, glass, and the Migratory Yellow Pages / La Seccíon Amarilla de la Migracíon, a welcoming handbook and cultural resource. Through memory and imagination, the MIGRATORY, reflects on border areas. The exhibition and accompanying publication were developed by the Rubin Center for the Visual Arts at The University of Texas, El Paso with the El Paso-based nonprofit Azul Arena.

The NM Humanities invites the creators of the documentary Truth or Consequences (2020) to New Mexico for a screening tour of the film. 

Held at the historic El Cortez Theater in Truth or Consequences, NM, this program includes a Q&A with the filmmakers and some community members featured in the film. Join us for an evening of reflection and conversation on themes of place, memory, progress, and history.

Organizer: New Mexico Humanities Council

GET TICKETS.

About the film: Truth or Consequences is a speculative documentary about time and how we weave the past into the present and our possible future. Set in Truth or Consequences, NM, the film takes place in the shadow of the world's first commercial Spaceport. Subtly set in a near future when space travel has begun, the film follows five residents in the town. Anchored in observational documentary footage, the film weaves together archival, virtual reality worlds, an improvised score by Bill Frisell, and a speculative premise based on the very real spaceport located just outside of town. These intertwine to create a lyrical meditation on progress, history, and how we navigate a sense of loss within ourselves and a changing world.
