DEBORAH KOENKER-Grapes & Tortillas
Category : XQ Personal Residency Updates
Here is a short video documentation of Deborah’s exhibition Grapes & Tortillas (July-October 2016, Kelowna Art Gallery), on the Mexican seasonal agricultural
workers in the Okanagan Valley (and across Canada). She plans to exhibit again in Chapala in 2018. Deborah was here on a personal residency in 2016.
It is an especially useful description of the work for those of you who weren’t able to see the show. Music is used with the kind permission of the estate of Lhasa de Sela and of Cloud
People Music/Lila Downs, and excerpts of text by Juan Felipe Herrera from “187 Reasons Mexicanos Can’t Cross the Border” is also used with permission.
