The MexiCali Biennial (MB) is pleased to announce the OPEN CALL for artworks and projects for the upcoming round of programming, titled The Land of Milk and Honey. This program will inaugurate in August 2022 and continue throughout 2023 and will be held at multiple arts institutions in California and Mexico. By focusing on concepts of Agriculture, the MB seeks dynamic proposals that navigate discourses and notions around labor, food (in)security, environmental impacts, land use, farming practices, and food justice in the binational region of California and Baja California. Subjects of particular interest include the Bracero Program, reflections on an (im)migrant labor force, cultural culinary traditions, the ecologies of borders, agriculture’s climate impacts, and Indigenous land stewardship.
The deadline to submit artworks is January 3, 2022.
