Full color catalog published and produced in 2015
University of Notre Dame Center of Art & Culture in partnership with CONACULTA, El Colegio de la Frontera Norte, and El Centro Cultural Tijuana and produced by Amelia Malagamba (University of Texas at San Antonio), Gilberto Cárdenas (University of Notre Dame), and Malaquias Montoya launches a new border art initiative, Exposición del Taller Fronterizo Border Workshop Espacios Fronterizos Compartidos.
The initiative addresses Mexican origin populations in the US and “fronterizo” populations from northern Mexico that share common or related histories and shared imaginaries. US and MX Artists will be invited to produce monotypes for inclusion in a print portfolio to be included in a traveling exhibition accompanied by a catalog featuring scholarly essays and images. For this first exhibition in the tour In Los Angeles six artists including Gronk, Francesco Siqueros, and Linda Vallejo were invited to produce monotypes created at El Nopal Press with master printmaker Francesco Siqueiros.
