2024 Border Biennial

One Arts Festival Plaza
El Paso 79901 United States


The El Paso Museum of Art (EPMA) announces the 2024 Border Biennial / Bienal Fronteriza 2024 to be presented December 15, 2023 – April 14, 2024.

The 2024 Border Biennial / Bienal Fronteriza 2024 will focus on the unique identity of the borderland, which includes a diversity of experiences. The exhibition will explore how the definition of “the border,” has helped shape artists’ artistic practice and make up who they are, including their history, gender, culture, race, sexuality, etc. The 2024 Border Biennial is curated by Claudia S. Preza M.A., EPMA Assistant Curator, alongside curatorial advisors Edgar Picazo Merino and Jazmín Ontiveros Harvey. Engaging programming and a publication capturing the show will accompany the exhibition. While the artworks in the Border Biennial focus on the United States / Mexico border, the exhibition provides an opportunity to reflect on borders and their conditions worldwide.

Entries can be submitted by individuals of any nationality. Individuals must live and work within a 200-mile radius of the United States / Mexico border. For artists’ collectives, at least one member must live or work in this geographic area and must be the applicant and point of contact for the collective. Artists selected for the Biennial may be asked to exhibit artworks submitted, other existing artworks, or newly commissioned works.

The open call is currently open and closes July 30, 2023 at 11:59pm MST. Guidelines and more information are attached and can be found at https://epma.art/art/border-biennial.
