Call to Artists

XICO GALERÍA

Xico is proud to host Intercambio Cultural / Cultural Exchange, an all-media group exhibition of artwork focused on contemporary artists from all walks of life. In a time when there are many barriers between people, art has the ability to cross them and connect us with other cultures, countries, and languages. This exhibition seeks artworks that dissolve borders to create unity across diverse cultures.
