CARNE y ARENA offers a harrowing glimpse of the border crossing experience
Pulling the curtain back on arguably one of the most controversial topics to date, Alejandro G. Iñárritu offers a glimpse inside the harrowing journey of border crossing. Through a virtual reality installation unlike any seen before, the five-time Academy Award-winning writer and director takes you on a sensorial expedition though CARNE y ARENA. Running through April 18 at the Nasher Sculpture Center, the installation asks patrons to walk in the shoes of migrants and refugees through this multinarrative experience.

“Since this project started growing in my mind a decade ago, my main interest was to experiment with VR technology in order to explore the human condition while finding a personal way to represent it,” notes Iñárritu. “No experience in CARNE y ARENA will ever be the same for any visitor. We created a truthful alternate space where you as a visitor will walk alongside the immigrants (and into their minds) with infinite possibilities and perspectives within a vast landscape, but you will go on your own terms.”
