a vbb book launch
Borderlines: Volume 1

Borderlines Volume 1

4-6 PM, Sunday, January 25, 2015
Cafe Brasil, 2604 Dunlavy Street, 77006

Join VBB for the second annual launch of our newest living room art (LRA) catalogue, Borderlines, Volume 1, which contains essays and photographs about the first year (2013-14) in Borderlines, a series of productions and workshops grounded in Near Northside that explored cross-cultural connections between the US-Mexico and Pakistan-India-Bangladesh border regions.

Co-sponsored by Cafe Brasil, the book launch will feature:
-readings from Houston-based contributors Daniel Bustamante, Jimmy Castillo and Shreerekha Subramanian
-an exhibition featuring prints from Borderlines productions
-books for sale at our special discounted rate
-local contributors and artists who will be on hand to sign copies

This catalogue features essays written by a large pool of community activists, artists, and academics including Chintan Girish Modi (India); Tehmina Ahmed (Pakistan); Sadya Mizan and Hafiza Nilofar Khan (Bangladesh); Minerva Laveaga (El Paso); Mónica Arreola and Adriana Trujillo (Mexico); Sehba Sarwar, Bapsi Sidhwa and Shreerekha Subramanian, (Houston, Texas/Pakistan, India); and interviews with Daniel Bustamante by Monica Villarreal and with LRA homeowner Frank Aguilar by Rob Block and Jimmy Castillo (Houston). The essays are edited by Drs. Margot Backus and Maria Gonzalez, professors at University of Houston.

Woven throughout the essays are photographs by Logan Sebastian Beck, Alejandro Cossio, Mónica Arreola, and many more, as well as links connecting the reader to VBB documentaries by Karen Martinez. These multimedia features allow the reader to experience VBB's productions as they unfurled!
