New Cities, Future Ruins (NCFR) is a four-year curatorial initiative inviting artists, designers, and thinkers to re-imagine and engage the extreme urbanism of America's Western Sun Belt. The Rubin Center’s contribution to New Cities, Future Ruins is the collaborative exhibition Sections, featuring three projects that reflect on the border environment - earth (Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello), air (AGENCY Architecture) and water (Ivan Puig). The final projects in the gallery space are complemented by a didactic installation under the artistic direction of Zeke Pena, who told the story of the projects development as well as highlight community projects that address the environment at the US-Mexico Border. Learn about an interesting collaboration between the artists Rael and San Fratello that features our UTEP Professor Vince Burke and his ceramic students using a 3D printer to create vessels from local sand:
