First Fronteras is a collective project that continues the body of work, Femme Frontera, that Adriana Monsalve initiated in 2017. It is a collaborative action in which she asked a vast variety of individuals to share the first frontera they remember being confronted with. We embrace the word frontera in all its contexts. It is not limited to landscape or environment, it is to be interpreted in countless ways. We are specifically cultivating a space for the nuance of this experience with this project. You will find the content to be made up of submissions from artists and civilians that were asked to draw / photograph / doodle / paint / collage (whatever they wanted really) their first frontera. Some of the collaborators have created work that is elaborate, others have done simple doodles, but the sentiment is the same— the tumultuous space that is the first wall they can ever remember coming up against. Along with their artwork, they have shared with us some sentences in their own handwriting about the said border. 

First Fronteras had its debut as an exhibition in Reston, VA at Greater Reston Arts Center in the summer of 2019 within a group show, entitled, Overlooked

First Fronteras was fully produced for us, by us, and about us.
