The Second Prize Acquisition was awarded to the video “443”, by artist Maya Yadid, hailing from Jerusalem, Israel.

The category of artists selected by invitation includes the Mexican artists Emilio Chapela, Rodrigo Hernández, Manuel Mathar and Rogelio Raúl Meléndez Cetina.
The awards meet the Biennial of the Frontier’s aim to promote the most innovative emerging art proposals and thus contribute to foster dialogue, exchange and critical discussion that takes into consideration the regional global relationship, its challenges and opportunities. The works by the selected artists will be exhibited in March, 2015 at the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Tamaulipas (MACT), the Biennial’s main venue, and they will be incorporated in the Museum’s Contemporary Art Collection.
The members of the Selection Committee were María del Carmen Aguirre Treviño, visual 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 Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil (Mexico) and Emiliano Valdés, curator at the Gwangju Biennial and the Museo de Arte Moderno de Medellín (South Korea / Colombia).

The works by other artists benefitting from the Biennial of the Frontiers Acquisitions Fund will be announced shortly.
Enthusiastic participation highlighted in platform for emerging visual art.
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).
Thus, Tamaulipas positions itself as a strong state that promotes the participation of creative artists in national and international forums, and allows different audiences to access the most relevant and innovative contemporary artistic expressions.
