Displacement: Symbols and Journeys, another bravura show curated by Amy Galpin, opened at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum May 21. The show explores borders and boundaries, but before you assume it's a heady conceptual brew of liminality and intersectional politics, pull up: This is a straightforward examination of the physical barrier between the United States and Mexico. Certainly there are looks at cultural appropriation, alienation and hybrid states of being, but mostly it's focused on U.S.-Mexico immigration. "I wanted to create a show for our community that melds my interest in artistic movement across the Mexico and United States border, but that also provides a space to think about immigration and the power of cultural symbols to usurp political boundaries," says Galpin, who points out that the 2016 presidential race has made the struggles of refugees starkly apparent. This gallery talk with three Orlando-based artists – Rima Jabbur and Wanda Raimundi-Ortíz, who have work in the show, and Leah Sandler, who assisted with the catalog – promises to deliver takes hot and cold, tender and furious, personal and political. 

6 p.m. Tuesday, June 14 | Cornell Fine Arts Museum, Rollins College, 1000 Holt Ave., Winter Park | 407-646-2526 | | free
