      EVENT DETAILS
      Salon Series // Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza

      Following in the tradition of literary and philosophical salons of the 17th and 18th century CCCD is hosting a series of gatherings in conjunction with each exhibition at Benchspace Gallery & Workshop to engage with a central theme of the show. A book will be selected based on the theme and provide a framework for discussion. Refreshments will be served, all are welcome.

      The Crafted Strangers Salon Theme is Border.

      Our discussion will center around themes of the exhibition and book, Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza by Gloria Anzaldua. Refreshments will be served. No reading necessary prior to the event.

      About the book: BORDERLANDS/LA FRONTERA remaps our understanding of what a "border" is, presenting it not as a simple divide between here and there, us and them, but as a psychic, social, and cultural terrain that we inhabit, and that inhabits all of us.

      This event is held in conjunction with the exhibition Crafted Strangers, on view at The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design from Friday, September 15, 2017 - Saturday, January 6, 2018.

      Crafted Strangers is curated by the 2017 CCCD Curatorial Fellows Matters Unsettled (Cass Gardiner and Quizayra Gonzalez) and organized by CCCD. The 2017 CCCD Curatorial Fellowship was made possible by the John & Robyn Horn Foundation. Exhibition programming is supported by Donna and Ralph Briskin. CCCD is supported in part by a grant from the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources. Benchspace programming is supported in part by Sara and Bill Morgan.

      Cost: Free - Free and open to the public, but please register.
