2021 Trienale CECUT, Tijuana Mexico
Founded in 2021, XoQUE is Trinational group of diverse women working on border issues. XoQue created site specific art installations on both sides of the border with the Kumeyaay/Kumiai community to raises awareness of their ongoing presence and to create pathways of healing through language, geography, and counter-stories. Each artist has co-created a unique installation that hopes to encourage dialogue and create visual representation of the border tribes. The installations form a three-dimensional, multimedia conceptual painting that is based of cultural memories and the intentional future.
