The Biennial of the Frontiers came up as an initiative by the Government of the State of Tamaulipas, through the Instituto Tamaulipeco para la Cultura y las Artes (Tamaulipas Institute for Culture and Art) and the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Tamaulipas (Tamaulipas Museum of Contemporary Art), with support from the Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes (National Council for Culture and Art), to create a public and participatory platform focusing on the most up-to-date expressions of emerging visual art.

The open call towards emerging visual artists and curators from Mexico and abroad had an enthusiastic response. A total of 1628 proposals from 58 countries were registered in the category of Emerging Artists. Creators from Austria, Algeria, Argentina, Belarus, Brazil, Bulgaria, Chile, Canada, Cyprus, China, Costa Rica, Colombia, Cuba, El Salvador, Ecuador, Spain, the USA, France, Finland, Greece, Guyana, Honduras, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Macedonia, Morocco, Mexico, Nicaragua, Norway, The Netherlands, Panama, Pakistan, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic, Rumania, Russia, Serbia, Syria, Sweden, South Africa, Thailand, Taiwan, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, Uruguay, Uzbekistan, Paraguay and Venezuela, submitted for the consideration of the Selection Committee between three and eight works, in two-dimensional and three-dimensional formats.

Due to the high number of submissions, the announcement of results scheduled for the end of November shall be postponed until the first week of December. This will allow a detailed review of the works by the Selection Committee, whose members are María del Carmen Aguirre Treviño, artist and architect (Mexico), Leonor Amarante, journalist and guest curator at the Curitiba Biennial (Brazil), Julia P. Herzberg, art historian and curator (USA), Guillermo Santamarina, Chief Curator at the Carrillo Gil Art Museum (Mexico) and Emiliano Valdés, curator at the Gwangju Biennial and the Medellín Museum of Modern Art (South Korea / Colombia).
