EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) — The City of El Paso Museum of Art is launching a call for entries to the 2024 Border Biennial exhibition that will be aiming to recognize, stimulate, and disseminate artistic creation on the U.S.-Mexico border.
The city says the exhibition aims to feature the unique distinctiveness of the Borderland, including a diversity of experiences. The exhibition will also explore how the definition of the border has helped shape artists’ practice and who they are regarding their history, gender, culture, race, sexuality, etc.
The city says a total of 25 artists or collectives will be selected to present artwork in the 2024 Border Biennial exhibition.
To be eligible, artists must live and work within 200 miles of the boundary between the U.S. and Mexico. The deadline to apply is July 30, 2023.
