Borderlines: Telling South Asian and US-Mexico Border Histories through Art and Performance


Join UCSD South Asia Initiative for a talk and discussion with artist Sehba Sarwar (Voices Breaking Boundaries), and UC San Diego graduate students Yessica Garcia-Hernandez (Ethnic Studies) and Sindhu Thirumalaisamy (Visual Arts), on Sarwar’s art series, Borderlines.

Voices Breaking Boundaries’ Borderlines series examines cross-cultural connections between North American and South Asian border regions. By tethering local community stories with international ones, Borderlines turns the city into a metaphor for international borders to unearth a complex narrative that challenges the stereotypes and misconceptions faced by migrant communities in border regions, and undocumented communities in Houston.
