The Consulate General of Mexico in LA invites emerging visual artists 35 years of age and under in Los Angeles (Greater Los Angeles area) to present original pieces of artwork in the following media: drawing, painting, photography, printing, ceramic, paper, sculpture, fibers, metal, collage and digital.

The 2022 edition of 35 x 35 exhibition, will commemorate the 200 Anniversary of Diplomatic Relations between Mexico and the US and artists can freely choose the theme of their artwork. We would like to learn and exhibit artworks that reflect the student's interests and / or concerns expressed in any of the aforementioned media.



This exhibition seeks to provide a platform to showcase the work of emerging visual artists in Los Angeles, while providing opportunities for creators to meet and interact with other young people and professionals dedicated to the arts. We also aim to provide personal feedback to artists by art experts.




The Mexican Center for Cultural and Cinematic Arts at the Mexican Consulate General in Los Angeles is a space that promotes Mexican identity through art and culture. It is a place of meeting for emerging and established artists of all nationalities, seeking support for creators, artists and filmmakers. It has a gallery and movie theater that allows the CCCM to display quality screenings and artworks.
