Parsons School of Design, NY

This exhibition just opened. It features things found on the Arizona/Mexico border left behind by migrants — many of whom did in the Sonora Desert.

An earlier installation of backpacks left by migrants crossing the Sonoran Desert in Arizona. The backpacks are exhibited in the show “State of Exception/Estado de Excepción.”

 “John Doe, Artifact #6” (2016), by Richard Barnes. These are personal effects found on the bodies of migrants who had died in the Sonoran desert on the United States side of the border
