Hostile Terrain 94: The Undocumented Migrant Project

Tue, Sep 13 - Fri, Oct 7

CEPA Gallery - Market Arcade Building • 617 Main St., Buffalo 14203

Description

Hostile Terrain 94 (HT94) is a participatory art project sponsored and organized by the Undocumented Migration Project (UMP), a non-profit research-art-education-media collective, directed by anthropologist Jason De León, professor at the University at California, Los Angeles. The exhibition is composed of over 3,200 handwritten toe tags that represent
migrants who have died trying to cross the Sonoran Desert of Arizona between the mid-1990s and 2019. These tags are geolocated on a wall map of the desert showing the exact locations where remains were found. This installation will simultaneously take place at a large number of institutions, both nationally and globally in 2021 throughout 2022.

Legacies of Forced Migration, directed by anthropologist and University at Buffalo faculty member, Oscar F. Gil, documents how traumatic memories associated with the Guatemalan war (1960-1996) and family separations form part of the everyday violence experienced by Indigenous Maya who must contend with new and old structural dynamics designed to deny
Indigeneity a place in Mexico and the United States. This project utilizes ethnography and photography to study the overarching problem of state policies at the border, their  corresponding effects on families, and to advance social justice claims for Indigenous Maya.
