Presented by Tufts University Art Galleries at the SMFA at Anderson Auditorium, SMFA at Tufts

Join us for this exciting documentary film examining the arduous process that went into creating the artwork “Repellent Fence,” a 2015 two-mile-long, temporary art installation straddling the US/Mexico border. The documentary tracks the progress of Postcommodity—a collective consisting of three Native American artists—as they negotiate borderland politics and bring communities together through “Repellent Fence.” Artists and scholars provide commentary on the art historical legacy of Postcommodity, and position the work of the collective within the tradition of Land Art.

Following the screening, members of Postcommodity will offer an audience Q+A.
