Origins and history

The Centro Cultural Border opened in 2007 after a year of planning by its founders Eugenio Echeverría, Virginie Vincent, Arturo Delgado and Mónica Ashida. The idea for the center, according to an interview with Echeverría, emerged from two conversations over mezcal in which the founders, recognizing the growth of graffiti and urban art, wanted to “make the ephemeral last more than one day, documenting its passing through time.”

It was originally located in Orizaba Street #203. Interventions, workshops and expositions

In addition to organizing expositions and workshops, the center promotes interventions focused on urban art and graffiti. In 2007 the center co-produced, along with the DSR collective, “Máscaras” (Masks), a graffiti exposition mounted on a trolley bus located on Guadalajara Street at the corner of Veracruz in the Condesa Neighborhood.

The center has showed work by several artists such as Zombra, Amor Muñoz, Adriana Riquer, Gabriela Rodríguez, Marco Arce, Luis Hurtado, Andrea M.
