We Are Here/Estamos Aquí features the use of photography as a mode of storytelling and agent for social change through images depicting the dynamic social aspects of the U.S./Mexico border. Downtown San Diego is situated less than 20 miles from the international border at the San Ysidro Port of Entry; the busiest land border crossing in the world.
We Are Here/Estamos Aquí looks at 2,000 miles of our southern border from Texas to California as a place where lives are shaped.
Ranging from portraiture and still life to installation-based work, the selection of photographs shares individual experiences, explores the impact of border crossing, and investigates various ways the cultures of the U.S. and Mexico, and San Diego and Tijuana are influenced by their proximity to one another. Photographers included in the exhibition are Stefan Falke, Ingrid Hernandez, Tom Kiefer, Pieter Wisse, and Borderclick, a group of young artists connected through San Diego non-profit, The AjA Project.
We Are Here/Estamos Aquí is organized by the SDSU Downtown Gallery. The exhibition and events are supported by The President’s Leadership Fund, Hahnemühle, The AjA Project, Rolando Gutierrez, the School of Art + Design, the College of Professional Studies and Fine Arts, and Arts Alive SDSU. Additional support is provided by the San Diego State University Art Council Ambassadors.
