Mexicali Biennial / Califas


The MexiCali Biennial 2018/2019. Raul Baltazar a trans-disciplinarian artist and Victoria Delgadillo filmmaker, fine art printer and organizer premiered their film “Califas”  at the MexiCali Biennial 2018/2019. Colonialism has never ceased and thus we have mashed-up time in our film, not as something that occurred in the past but rather revealing the threads that expose our current position in California, our need for resistance and our participation in this clash/ cataclysm of cultures. Scroll below to view the complete version of  “Califas.”  After the credits, check out some out takes.

“CALAFIA: Manifesting the Terrestrial Paradise,” exhibit opening: Thursday, October 4, 2018, running through December 15, 2018  at Robert & Frances Fullerton Museum of Art, as part of the MexiCali Biennial exhibit.  “CALAFIA: Manifesting the Terrestrial Paradise,” included work by US & Mexican artists. Read a write up from TERREMOTO/Contemporary Art in the Americas Magazine here.  They liked our film!! (Although it seems as if the author Arden Decker was moved by the images in our film, the sound quality in the exhibit was not the best.  Much of the language was in Spanish and the story line was moved by the music and the words, as well as the images.  Still, we are glad to have been featured in the article!) #LysaFlores #EndyBernal #RamonGarcia #ReinaPrado  Read more on this exhibit through the MexiCali Biennial
