Casa Familiar has the pleasure to invite you to the commemoration of The FRONT Arte & Cultura’s 15th Anniversary Art Exhibition: El Devenir / Becoming

El Devenir / Becoming

This exhibition intends to contemplate the past and the future in the same blink of an eye. We accept and place ourselves in that constant process of becoming something else, without  completely ceasing to be what we already were and what we already are. The exhibition finds in the values ​​of heritage, tradition, social justice and community a foundation upon which to explore the poetics of the past and present, those that serve to build our own future, our own becoming. 

This selection of artists and their works reflect upon multiple temporalities, subjects that represent the vision of Casa Familiar and The FRONT, as an art space for the community. These are topics that in this, our 15th anniversary, we honor and respect. They represent matters  that convince us even more, that our mission as cultural agents is of utmost importance to our community.

The commemoration will also include a special Dj set concert by grammy nominated electronic Tijuana band: Nortec, Bostich + Fussible, (tickets to this concert will be free but limited), as well as a panel discussion with former directors of the gallery, workshops, tours of the exhibition, and the premiere of a retrospective video about the gallery.
