Hostile Terrain 94 Exhibition

September 14, 2021 - October 15, 2021

Join us every Tuesday-Thursday from 4-7 PM, 9/14 – 10/13 in Maxwell Hall for the Hostile Terrain 94 Exhibition. This will be followed by extended gallery hours on Friday, October 15th.

HT94 is a participatory art exhibition that illuminates the humanitarian crisis occurring at the US border. In 1994, the US Border Patrol launched the immigration enforcement strategy “Prevention Through Deterrence (PTD).” Undocumented migrants were funneled through treacherous environments, dubbed as “Hostile Terrain” by U.S. Border Patrol. At least 3,200 people have died, largely from dehydration and hyperthermia, while attempting this journey through Arizona. PTD remains the primary enforcement strategy used on the U.S./Mexico border today.
