About Probar Fortuna
A selection of immigrant stories told through video installations, animations and soundscapes, Probar Fortuna invites viewers to experience the stories of four men who have, in their own way, taken the journey across the U.S./Mexico border. Ranging from the late 1980’s to the mid 1990’s, these treks allow viewers to recognize the similarities in today’s immigrant stories. Probar Fortuna attempts to tell and understand how an immigrant’s decision to leave their home is not what we all believe it to be. Ana Treviño is an artist and educator based in Austin, TX. Her work investigates hybrid cultures and identity politics through video installation and performance. She aims to reintegrate her heritage by renovating traditions into new conditions. Her most recent work invites viewers to explore the experiences of immigrant crossings of the U.S./Mexico border through language, visuals and sound.
