Braceros Exhibition

Thursday, April 25, 2019 - 4:30pm to 5:30pm

Location: 4112 H.J Patterson 

Light Refreshments: Conference Room 4120

A specter is haunting the world—the specter of immigration. In this exhibit, we explore the experience of emigrating, as it was rendered by photographers who had also been uprooted. Today, as waves of migrations hurl themselves on the coasts and borders of the world, it seems appropriate to reflect on the Mexican braceros who were recruited to fill the boots of those US soldiers who had gone to fight fascism in the Second World War. Under the "Bracero Program, 1942-1964," Mexicans were legally contracted to work int he USA as temporary unskilled laborers. We have chosen to tell this story through photographs made by other emigrants, Spanish refugees from that country's Civil War (1936-1939), who—though they left their country for different reasons—nonetheless bring the particular gave of emigrants to this task.
