The U.S.-Mexican border is a highly charged area. One Santa Barbara artist is taking that charge to a more literal level. In her most recent installation, called Border Control, Yara El-Sherbini uses a classic game called Buzz wire to wrestle with physical, social and political border issues. KCRW’s Jonathan Bastian stopped by the Museum of Contemporary Art to speak with El-Sherbini about her playful take on a powerful debate.
She’ll be speaking at the Museum of Contemporary Art this evening from 6-7pm. You can learn more here.
