V. Kim Martinez’s multi-disciplinary installation, 7 Steps Forward 7 Steps Back, is based on her experiences traveling routes used by Mexican/Native American migrants for thousands of years along the now United States and Mexican borders. The exhibition includes paintings, drawings and an animated five-minute video, in response to what she witnessed while traversing routes used by Mexican/Native American migrants for thousands of years along the now United States and Mexican borders. Her motivation in developing this series was to increase understanding of political and social discourse of the region. The images are not literal but rather intellectual concepts and metaphors. This event is free and open to the public.
