BORDERLINE: Exhibition Extended Until January 15, 2012
Yellow Peril Gallery is pleased to announce that BORDERLINE, the exhibition of the fence that divides the United States and Mexico as seen through the eyes of those who come into contact with it on a daily basis, will be extended until January 15, 2012.
Featuring the photography of Rebecca A. Kandel, BORDERLINE has received positive reviews from both audiences and critics since opening on November 15, 2011.
“Even though these images are thought provoking, they are also aesthetically gorgeous,” wrote GoLocalProv Art Critic Renee Doucette in the first review of BORDERLINE. “She (Kandel) composes the objects within her frame thoughtfully giving the viewer various levels to engage with the subject.” Doucette added, “There is no doubt that this first show strongly embodies the socially aware mission of Yellow Peril and is a definite must see.”
BORDERLINE was selected by The Providence Phoenix as an “Editor’s Pick” — humorously noting: “Was it Perry or Cain who recently suggested that we electrify the fence that divides Mexico and the southwestern US? I think it was the alleged groper, not the Texas wingnut.”
In the December 2011 issue of PROVIDENCE MONTHLY magazine, readers were encouraged to chat up their feelings — “whatever they may be” — by checking out BORDERLINE. “The exhibit incorporates images of myriad characters whose lives are affected by the border, from coyotes to human rights workers to Border Patrol agents, to stories told in their own words so you can see and hear their unique views.”
