A Multidisciplinary Project
The Borderland Festival is a deep and multi-layered exhibition which began on Nov.29 with a series of interventions in San Francisco. Tonight ( DEC. 2nd ) the program opens on a wider front with a film festival , a gallery
reception and a live "psychomagick" radio presention by members of the
Enemy Combatant Radio / Indybay crew. and the Borderland Collective have gathered a diverse
range of multi-disciplinary artist and media active participants to "
share an understanding of both the physical Mexico/U.S border and the more implicit socially constructed borders that surround us all."

This month-long exhibition investigates a multitude of perspectives " of
borders or borderlands and how the artist either contests the border
construction or has been shaped by it."
