A new exhibition featuring the work of 42 artists working in San Diego and Tijuana will open Thursday, Sept. 20, at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego‘s downtown location.

“Being Here with You/ Estando Aquí Contigo” will include works by both early career and established artists in media ranging from painting, sculpture and photography to digital media, installation and performance.

The title is borrowed from the bilingual song “Angel Baby” by Rosie and the Originals, a teenage band from National City, in a nod to the region’s rich history of homegrown talent.

Museum curators said the San Diego and Tijuana artistic communities are distinct but overlapping, and the exhibition seeks to builds on the ongoing artistic exchanges between the two cities.

“Being Here with You” runs through Feb. 8. The museum is open 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. every day but Wednesday, and stays open to 8 p.m. on the third Thursday of every month.
