MRM News:

‘Strike a Pose: Fashion as an Artistic Framework’ is the theme of the ultimate in the curated conversation series that is part of the Millicent Rogers Museum (MRM) exhibition ‘New Mexico A-i-R: IAIA Artist Residents in Visual Dialogue’.

The exhibition is on view at the Museum through Jan. 29.

Featured on the panel are artists:

  • Orlando Dugi (Diné)
  • Wayne Nez Gaussoin (Picuris Pueblo, Diné)
  • Cara Romero (Chemehuevi).

The panel will take fashion as its focus and will consider its role as a framework for artistic production. The featured artists—all based in Santa Fe—work in textiles, found materials, wood, metals, and photography. 

This discussion will explore the ways that fashion influences their medium, composition, and artistic genre. The conversation will move through different concepts of fashion and the ways these relate to Indigenous worldviews and contemporary art practices.
