The MexiCali Biennial: ART, ACTION, AND EXCHANGES in Baja/California Symposium

April 21, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Mexicali Biennial 2009/2010 Poster

The MexiCali Biennial presents a full-day symposium dedicated to highlighting the artistic and cultural innovations of its programs. Since 2006, the MexiCali Biennial has promoted the shared regions of California and Baja California as a site of unique aesthetic production. This symposium will bring together three panels of artists, curators, and scholars to discuss past and present exhibitions. Each panel will address broader issues and key themes defining contemporary art in both Californias over the last few decades, including biennials and art institutions, exhibition models, conceptualism, border activations, and colonial mythologies and the decolonial. These conversations will shed light on the place of the MexiCali Biennial in broader histories of Chicanx-Latinx, American, Mexican, and U.S.-Mexico borderlands art.

This event is organized in conjunction with the exhibition MexiCali Biennial: Art, Actions, Exchanges that is currently on view at the Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art & Culture. Support for this program comes from the Mellon Foundation and the ACLS Sustaining Public Humanities grant. Schedule coming soon!
