In "Border Bingo", Ochoa focused on Mexican lotería, which is played like a form of Bingo with illustrated cards. Embracing the possibilities of hybrid and transnational creativity, the artist ironically populated his "lotería" cards with anthropomorphized objects drawn from border culture, including a border patrol agent’s binoculars, a tourist’s camera, a maid's cleaning products, a soldier’s boot, and a punk’s chains. The grouping reflects stereotypes commonly associated with the border during the 1980s. Even though the area is perceived as a place of international tension under military rule, local border communities continue to thrive and affirm their cultural diversity.", "Dedication" : "Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, Gift of Gilberto Cárdenas, 2017", "Copyright_Type" : "", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "", "Creation_Place2" : "", "Department" : "Prints and Drawings; Latin American Art", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/2017.508-sheet.tif", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/2017.508-sheet.tif", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/2017.508-sheet.tif", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/2017.508-sheet.tif", "IsPrimary" : "0", "_SurrogateID" : "18275", "Image_Type" : "Digital image", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/2017.508-Crop.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/2017.508-Crop.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/2017.508-Crop.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/2017.508-Crop.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "22665", "Image_Type" : "Digital image", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/2017.508-Sheet.jpg", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/2017.508-Sheet.jpg", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/2017.508-Sheet.jpg", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/2017.508-Sheet.jpg", "IsPrimary" : "0", "_SurrogateID" : "22666", "Image_Type" : "Digital image", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] },{ "embark_ID" : 23476, "URL" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Objects-1/info/23476", "Disp_Access_No" : "2017.605.9", "_AccNumSort1" : "", "Disp_Create_DT" : "1988", "_Disp_Start_Dat" : "1988", "_Disp_End_Date" : "1988", "Disp_Title" : "Magueyes [Magueys], from The New Immigration", "Alt_Title" : "", "Obj_Title" : "Magueyes [Magueys], from The New Immigratin", "Series_Title" : "", "Disp_Maker_1" : "Alejandro Romero", "Sort_Artist" : "Romero, Alejandro", "Disp_Dimen" : "56 x 37.9 cm (22 1/16 x 14 15/16 in.)", "Disp_Height" : "56 cm", "Disp_Width" : "37.9 cm", "Dimen_Extent" : "sheet", "Medium" : "Aquatint with etching and roulette", "Support" : "", "Disp_Medium" : "Aquatint with etching and roulette", "Info_Page_Comm" : "In 1988, Sister Karen Boccalero and Gilberto Cárdenas worked together to organize this portfolio entitled "The New Immigration" ["La nueva inmigración"], of ten etchings by five artists. The prints, sponsored by Self Help Graphics and co-published by Galería Sin Fronteras, were produced at Taller Romero in Mexico City by printer Renato Esquivel Romero. According to Cárdenas, this series pays “homage to the perseverance and dignity of the new Latino immigrants as they struggle with the transition into American society.” He has also said that they are a reminder of “the role that immigration plays in enriching the economic vitality of our society and the contributions that the immigrants and their children will have in making American society a better community for tomorrow—a community ‘sin fronteras.’” Each of the five selected artists presents a distinctive take on politics, immigration, and the border. Alejandro Romero used dark, dense imagery to evoke the terror of violence enacted by the U.S. Border Patrol and detention centers. His layered style suggests a haunting vision of ghostly bodies floating past a maguey or agave plant at the center of each of his compositions.", "Dedication" : "Blanton Museum of Art, The University of Texas at Austin, Gift of Gilberto Cárdenas, 2017", "Copyright_Type" : "", "Disp_Obj_Type" : "", "Creation_Place2" : "", "Department" : "Prints and Drawings; Latin American Art", "Obj_Name" : "", "Period" : "", "Style" : "", "Edition" : "", "Curator" : "", "Images": [ { "ImagePath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/images/2017.605.9-sheet.tif", "ThumbnailPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Thumbnails/2017.605.9-sheet.tif", "PreviewPath" : "https://webkiosk.gallerysystems.com/Media/Previews/2017.605.9-sheet.tif", "IIIF_URL": "http://iiif.gallerysystems.com/2017.605.9-sheet.tif", "IsPrimary" : "1", "_SurrogateID" : "19149", "Image_Type" : "Digital image", "Photo_Credit" : "", "Remarks" : "", "View" : "" } , ] }, ] }
