With the intent to recognize and foment the development of visual arts in the northwest of our country, the cultural institutes of the member states of the Regional Fund for Culture and Arts –Baja California, Baja California Sur, Sinaloa and Sonora– joined efforts to celebrate the 14th Biennial of Northwester Visual Arts. The Culture Institute of Sinaloa is pleased to serve as the first headquarter of the exhibition integrated by the works of twenty-nine selected artists. The proposals approach such diverse topics as love, migration, nostalgia, politics, and violence, and they make use of both traditional media and the latest technology applied to art.

Visual arts are an effective instrument for generating changes. The corpus of the sample gives account of the aesthetic heritage from diverse vanguards and the influence of current artistic movements that take place in the center of the country, as well as in the United States, where the continuity is the search for innovate and build ways of expression, that deeply mark the development of contemporary art in the northwest.

Carl Jung mentions that the creative act takes place at the level of consciousness, although the creative process is of unconscious nature. From this precept we know that the aesthetic intention is voluntary and during its process of conformation the work is getting filled with unconscious contents and ideas; which is exposed here and warns us to close the circle of creative-communicative act with our conscious interpretation.
