This exhibition of visual art tries to take control of our own voices to clarify what is professed in the north of the United States about us. Our intention is to show things as they are and dismantle "The Weapon." Things are not entirely admirable, but the country's problems are not ours or those of the immigrants. The problem arises because of the founding of a country developed in injustices. In order to understand each other, let's listen to each other without prejudice.

As artists, we observe and shape our testimonies. This group of works is a small sample to reflect and analyze ourselves. It is also a way to unmask myths and show our strengths and weaknesses. We use the gallery as a platform for those willing to meet us and enter into dialogue. Perhaps yes, the border is a weapon, but loaded with hopes and dreams.
