The Armory is pleased to present the fourth iteration of the MexiCali Biennial, CALAFIA: Manifesting the Terrestrial Paradise—a series of exhibitions and related programs taking place throughout the California region, north and south of the US/Mexico border, that explore the 16th century myth of the indigenous Black Queen Calafia and her island home. This exhibition features twenty-nine artists and collectives using diverse aesthetic strategies to engage with the consequences of being in a place continuously framed as a “paradise.” In conjunction with the Armory exhibition, satellite programming will take place in Calexico, Mexicali, and Tijuana.
