Marcos Ramírez, the artist ERRE exhibiting his solo Them and Us / Ellos Y Nosotros at Mass MoCA, will hold a conversation with his two brothers — poet and visual artist Omar Pimienta and Professor Juan Carlos Ramírez-Pimienta, an expert on border culture, as well as the narcocorrido, a genre of ballad inspired by the drug trade — giving Three Familiar Views from / at the U.S.-Mexican border.

Together they share their intimate knowledge of transnationality and the rich culture of the border region, bringing us a fuller picture of the USA-Mexico border and its development since the 1980s through family stories from the Colonia Libertad neighborhood of Tijuana and their varied artistic and academic studies.
Mass MoCA will stream this talk live through their YouTube channel.

Marcos Ramírez ERRE’s exhibition Them and Us / Ellos Y Nosotros is on view now through October 24, 2021. Explore in person or virtually through a 3D gallery tour. You don’t need to RSVP to watch, but the museum asks people to let us them you’ll be tuning in.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
