Conceived at the height of the immigration debate during the Trump presidency, conceptual artist Joel Tauber embarked on a 40-day pilgrimage along the U.S.–Mexico border. Deeply unsettled by the amplifying division and separation, Tauber wanted to turn the tables of the conversation by fostering connection and community. The result of this poetic and activist gesture is Border-Ball, a site-specific installation exploring how the dynamics of trust and open dialogue can bridge the growing rifts of fractured societies. Presented on the heels of Tauber’s award-winning film of the same title, the exhibition debuts at ArtCenter’s Williamson Gallery from March 10 through June 4, 2022.
