Over the past decade, a seismic shift in economic and political forces has transformed life in the second-largest city on the West Coast, situated at the most heavily trafficked international border crossing in the world. Tijuana's newfound wealth and haphazard expansion have changed patterns of migration for the city's many artists, who once routinely moved north to Los Angeles but are now staying or returning, and being joined by friends from Mexico City and beyond. This flourishing, strengthening artistic community has responded to the city's accelerated evolution with a broad range of work, from painting to conceptually driven installations; from street-level digital video to ambitious photo-documentation, filmmaking and political work; from sophisticated architectural proposals to product design associated with the internationally renowned "Nortec" musical movement.
