Building off the recognition of her successful public art work “Borrando la Frontera” (2012), located in Tijuana, Mexico, artist Ana Teresa Fernández is expanding the vision of erasing borders to engage multiple communities along the MEX/US border. Starting in October 2015, she worked with residents and students to erase the border in Nogales, Mexico. On April 9, 2016, she will launch a multi-city public art project that brings three Mexican cities together to erase a section of the border as symbolic resistance to the ongoing structural violence that borders impose on Mexican communities. Working with Mexican artists and community leaders in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua; Agua Prieta, Sonora; and Mexicali, Baja California, each community will erase the border. The acts of erasure can be viewed LIVE-STREAM on Twitter and Periscope during the actual painting. The live-stream will also be shown for public viewing in cities across the world, including: Phoenix, Mexico City, Tijuana, and Quito.
