Please join us Friday, March 13th, 6-8PM for the opening of Talleres Sin Fronteras. This traveling exhibition, derived from the Cardenas Collection of Latino Art, features original monoprints and silkscreen artwork produced at Talleres over the last 30 years, focusing on the themes of borders, migration, and bi-national and transnational movements. The collection strives to advance a more humane understanding of migration and border issues, and to present the human face of migration and transnational experiences of immigrants living permanently in various communities in the U.S.

The Talleres de la Frontera initiative began in 1984 under the direction and leadership of Amelia Malagamba who was the Director of the Department of Arts and Culture at COLEF (El Colegio de la Frontera Norte) and continued annually through 1996 under the auspices of (COLEF) with opening exhibitions and related programming at El Centro Cultural de Tijuana. Amelia Malagamba secured partnerships with Self Help Graphics, Inc. (Los Angeles) and Galeria sin Fronteras, Inc. (Austin, TX) as well as with artists and print studios in Baja California.
The initiative also formed a national team – Talleres de la Frontera/Border Working Group, comprised of artists, scholars, and arts administrators who collectively assess and analyze how art and scholarship could be integrated and shared with larger publics on matters important to the nation. These include scholars from throughout the United States: Alex Chaves- Notre Dame, Gilberto Cardenas, Notre Dame, Olga Herrera, Washington, DC, Victor Espinosa, University of Ohio, Karen Mary Davalos, University of Minnesota, Amelia Malagamba, San Antonio, TX, Maria de los Angeles Torres, University of Illinois, Chicago, Norma Iglesias, San Diego State University, Tomas Ybarra Frausto, San Antonio, TX among others.
