Open Call for Mexican Artists

Deadline: August 26, 2016.

Méxtasis is an open call for Mexican artists to present their work in Bushwick, Brooklyn, New York during Bushwick Open Studios. The project aims to present a new perspective on Mexican contemporary art, one that goes beyond cultural stereotypes and offers a new platform of visibility and cultural awareness for a country that is so present in debates surrounding politics and immigration but not enough discussed in relation to art and creativity.

The open call is open to artists of Mexican nationality regardless of their age or country of residence.

Selection announcement: August 29, 2016.
Exhibition (during Bushwick Open Studios): September 30 – October 2, 2016.
