Artists for the Border Biennial

The artists for this year’s  Cd Juarez-El Paso Biennial have been announced. There were 287 entries, more than in past years, and of these, 45 were selected. I’m happy to see the inclusion of a pretty fair representation of artists from Mexico including many fron Monterrey as well as artists from Tamaulipas and Baja California. This year Mexican sculptor Mely Barragan Chavez, winner of the 2013 Biennale award, will create a site specific piece at the El Paso  Museum of Art. There is no indication if  she will also create a piece at the Museo de Arte in Juarez.

The exhbition will open on October 11 and run through January 24. Congratulations to all those selected.
