Hostile Terrain 94 (HT94) is a participatory art exhibition occurring in nearly 150 cities around the globe that seeks to memorialize and bear witness to the humanitarian crisis at the U.S./Mexico Border that has claimed the lives of thousands of people since the 1990s. This tragic loss of human life is the direct result of U.S. border policies that purposefully put migrants into harm’s way. HT94 raises awareness about the human consequences of these policies while also promoting a global discourse on migration through collaboration with hosting partners and exhibition attendees around the world.
