The Art of the U.S.-Mexico Border in AQ’s Latest Culture Issue

“Cultura” is a twice-yearly feature on music, art and literature in our hemisphere. In this edition: the U.S.-Mexico border.

AQ is proud to offer the third installment of “Cultura,” our in-depth look at art and culture in Latin America and the Caribbean. As part of our special issue on U.S.-Mexico relations, for this edition we keep our eyes trained on the border, and find that the space where the U.S. and Mexico meet is fertile ground for music, poetry, film, and everything in between.

Articles include a look at how Hollywood portrays – and at times does disservice to – the U.S.-Mexico relationship; two profiles of the surprising opera and classical music programs taking root on the border; two poems on our shared border identity; and a portfolio of work from the inSite art program. Enjoy.
