Undocumented immigrants and other artists who are making art at the militarized Mexican border find they have a double life: There's meaning in working in public, in graffiti and murals and guerrilla street installations and video projections, but they often have to keep their true identities to themselves. In this exhibition, each artist lives in or around Juárez, Mexico, but sometimes that's all they have in common. One might be an undocumented immigrant and desperate for work, another might be a professor. But several, importantly, are pushing at the invisible but powerful borders of gender and sexuality, too. It's a complex confluence, but the imagery is direct and eye-popping. JEN GRAVES
