ni de aquí ni de allá is a socially engaged, experimental art space that challenges borders and binaries. Hosted inside of a 8’W x 20’ L cargo container in the backyard of the fronteristxs project space, ni de aquí ni de allá is rooted in making meaningful relationships with the community. It is a space for art, coalition events, screenings, workshops, and for exchanging knowledge, to challenge and continuously grow the narrative of making and exhibiting art.

ni de aquí ni de allá translates to “neither from here nor there” ; it is a phrase that many individuals have come to identify with to describe their experience of navigating the southwest borderlands. The fronteristxs both resonate with this statement and look to it as an inspiration for breaking the binary of all borders, as it offers an opportunity to create our own spaces of empowerment, liberation, and recognition.

ni de aquí ni de allá is a project conceived by the fronteristxs collective. Lead by fronteristxs members: hazel batrezchavez, Szu-Han Ho, and Martín Wannam.

OPEN CALL: 2024 Exhibition Session | Deadline: July 31, 2024
