Upcoming Exhibition: 6th Chicana/o Biennial

MACLA is pleased to announce its sixth Chicana/o Biennial (December 2, 2016 - March 12, 2017), an exhibition and public forum conceived to take inventory of and invite reflection every two years on the continuously emergent energy, critical edge, and aesthetic interventions within contemporary Chicano art.


As such, this year’s biennial takes a thematic approach by asking the following questions: 1) What are the pressing concerns at this moment in time? (politics) 2) What does Chicana/o art look like today? (aesthetics) 3) How do artists engage the community? (activism & organizing).


We are interested in work that depicts the intersection of art, technology, and new media. We welcome proposals and projects from disciplines/ genres/ activities that are not normally displayed in the gallery setting. This exhibition is a no-fee juried exhibition open to all artists who self-identify as Chicana/o.
