Borderline Projects – La Loteria Exhibition, Brooklyn
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: LA LOTERIA ART EXHIBIT, NY
Deadline: 15 July, 2011
La Loteria is a game similar to Bingo. Instead of numbers, it uses a deck of cards illustrated with figures that represent everyday objects, plants, animals, mythical creatures and other characters.
Borderline Projects encourages artists from all countries and backgrounds to participate in LA LOTERIA, an international exhibition that will feature work inspired by the Loteria Mexicana (Mexican Bingo) deck of cards. The exhibition will take place in September 2011 at Observatory, an arts and cultural space in New York City.
The idea behind this exhibition is to use the images of La Loteria as a matrix that helps us generate dialogues, intersections, and points of encounter. We want to invite artists from all origins and disciplines to be inspired by the symbolism, style, characters, themes or any other aspect of La Loteria that they find suggestive. We invite you to adapt, play homage, adopt or desecrate La Loteria.
This exhibition seeks to open a liminal space around these cards, a border-zone where it’s possible to explore our differences together.
