AMBOS LADOS means BOTH SIDES
(referring to the border)
The Ambos Lados International Print Exchange is being run from both sides of the border -- by Manuel Guerra of the "Horned Toad Prints" studio in El Paso, and by "Taller Grafica Libre" in Zaachila, Oaxaca, run by Adrian Aguirre and Beatriz Rivas.
This print exchange asked for an edition of 12 prints, on 8 x 8 inch paper. Most participants are from the US and Mexico, though editions from Australia, Canada, Ireland and Cuba have been delivered.
