See more maps of an infamous border dispute

This event has been rescheduled from October 13 to October 20.

A complicated map of the Rio Grande’s shifting course is on exhibit in Bending Lines as part of our discussion about the power of maps to determine the edges of national inclusion and identity.

In this behind-the-scenes curatorial tour, we’ll look at more maps of the Chamizal dispute from the same portfolio of reports from the International Boundary Commission that produced this colorful river map.
