Boundaries–Richard Blanco and Jacob Hessler at the CMCA

February 18, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

Please join us at CMCA for the Opening Reception of Boundaries | Richard Blanco + Jacob Bond Hessler, with a special reading by poet Richard Blanco at 1:30pm. The exhibition will open in conjunction with the 2018 Camden Conference, with free admission for Camden Conference Passholders throughout the weekend.

Boundaries is a recent collaborative project between Obama Presidential Inaugural Poet Richard Blanco and contemporary landscape photographer Jacob Bond Hessler. Together, Blanco’s poems and Hessler’s photographs investigate the visible and invisible boundaries of race, gender, class, and ethnicity, among others. They challenge the physical, imagined, and psychological dividing lines—both historic and current—that shadow America and perpetuate an ‘us’ versus ‘them’ mindset by inciting irrational fears, hate, and prejudice.
