For the majority of Americans, the building of a permanent wall along the U.S.-Mexico border is still an abstract concept. But in many places, such as San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico, the wall is a long-standing reality.

There, the San Ysidro Port of Entry, the largest land border crossing between the two communities, is part of everyday life for residents and commuters on both sides of the wall. It is this wall that Marcos Ramirez, the artist known as ERRE (a nod to the rolled `r' of Spanish) is bringing to the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art as part of his exhibition, "Them and Us / Ellos Y Nosotros," opening Saturday.
