MexiCali Biennial 2013

May 24, 2013-June 30, 2013 Opening Reception: May 24, 8 PM MexiCali Biennial 2013 Mexicali Rose Centro de Arte y Medios Avenida Colima, No.1436 Colonia Pueblo Nuevo, Mexicali, Mexico --- January 19, 2013-April 13, 2013 Opening Reception: January 19, 6-9 PM MexiCali Biennial 2013 Vincent Price Art Museum East Los Angeles College 1301 Avenida Cesar Chavez Monterey Park, CA 91754-6099 The MexiCali Biennial is a dynamic platform for creating new channels of communication between artists and audiences in the US and Mexico. VPAM is proud to host the third MexiCali Biennial that will take place from January 19 to April 13, 2013. The theme of MexiCali 2013 is cannibalism. The cannibal is a creature that threatens the collapse of identity and ethics, and instills anarchy in the social order. Cannibalism in the New World was one of the central rationales for colonialism, but MexiCali also proposes it as the path forward for a new model of avant-garde practice. Cannibalism can open up radical new spaces in art for bodies and their environmental interactions, and push against the oppressive pressure of hegemonic Western cultural systems. These transformative possibilities can change our relationship with art, and perhaps with the world itself. Curated by Ed Gomez, Luis G.
