To unite photographers from USA and Mexico, as an act of solidarity through the collaboration of a group photography exhibit on the border wall that is trying so hard to divide us.
Para unir fotógrafos de México junto con el país vecino, EEUU, en un acto de soliradidad, colaborando en una exposición grupal fotográfica sobre el muro que tanto pretende dividirnos.
The idea started with La ColectiBA, a group of photographers from Argentina who’s objective was to find new public spaces to think and act in relationship to photography. Now, with the political climate and the continued pressure to build a more divisive wall between the United States and Mexico, we wanted to unite people through a public photo gallery at the actual border. Our hope is to inspire an open dialogue and build an empowered community that collaborates instead of divides. 
La idea viene de La ColectiBA, un grupo de fotógrafos en Argentina que tuvieron como objetivo buscar nuevos espacios de encuentro abiertos para pensar y actuar en relación a la práctica. Ahora con el clima político actual y la presión continua de construir un muro, decidimos organizar un evento público en la frontera para fomentar la comunidad e inspirar el diálogo abierto entre ambas culturas.

This is a free and public event and we welcome photographers of all levels. 
 

To participate, simply REGISTER on our website.
 

At the day of the event, please bring a print or series of prints that represent UNITY to you.
 

Photos must be mounted on a rigid or semi rigid material like cardboard, foamboard, balsawood , etc… Photos will be hung on the metal fence that is currently dividing US/MEX. We will provide hanging materials.
 

At the end of the exhibit, each participant is responsible for dismounting their photo/s off the wall and leaving the area clean, disposing of any scrap materials. 
 

  • There are no restrictions on size or amount of photos you can exhibit, but please keep in mind that you are sharing the wall with others and we’d like everyone to have room. We want to remind you that this is a public space and we ask that you don’t bring photos of nudes, erotics and themes that might offend the sensibilities of others.  

La convocatoria es GRATUITA y ABIERTA a fotografos de  todos niveles.

Para participar, simplemente REGISTRATE en nuestro sitio web.
 

En el dia del evento porfavor traiga fotografia/s que represente UNIDAD para ti.

Las fotografías deberán estar montadas en un material rígido o semi-rígido, como cartón montado, foamboard, fibro fácil, etc. Las fotos serán colgadas de las reja que divide US/MEX. Nosotros te brindamos con materiales para colgar.

Al final de la exhibición, cada expositor es responsable de desmontar su fotografia/s y dejar el espacio utilizado limpio y ordenado, desechando correctamente los restos. 

  • Queremos recordarte que es un lugar público, por lo tanto te pedimos que no traigas fotos de desnudos, eróticas, y otras temáticas que pudieran herir susceptibilidades. Con respecto a la cantidad y tamaño de fotos no hay restricciones. Pero tenga en cuenta que somos muchos los que participamos y nos gustaría que haya lugar para todos.
