<i>Curated Conversations: Caminos del Río Grande: Luis Jiménez’s Borderlands Art</i>
Luis Jiménez, "Progress II [Progreso II]," 1976 (1999), fiberglass, resin and acrylic paint, 125 3/4 x 261 x 136 1/4 in. Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, Anonymous gift, 2011    Photo courtesy of Luis Jiménez

Luis Jiménez, born in El Paso and a longtime resident of New Mexico, lived most of his life in the American Southwest. In his art, he critically addressed themes like the history of Westward Expansion, immigration, and the contributions that Mexican Americans have made to the region.

Distinguished scholars Holly Barnet-Sanchez and John Morán González will explore how the culture and history of the borderlands - not only between United States and Mexico, but also between Texas and New Mexico helped shape the artistic vision of this prominent American artist.
