The opening reception will be 5:30-8 p.m. in the NHCC Art Museum.
The exhibition features approximately 26 newly created artworks by artists with different experiences in New Mexico alongside works from the NHCC Art Museum’s permanent collection. All of the artworks delve into race and place through an intersectional lens alongside gender, sexuality, class, nationality, citizenship status, etc. from local, national, and international perspectives.
This museum exhibition included much contemplation by the Visual Arts program staff and interns about what it might look like to create an exhibit that relinquished a bit of institutional control and placed it in the hands of the artists. Many of the works were not seen in their completed form until just weeks before the opening. The process continues to be a learning experience and the hope is to maintain an environment of openness and education, for the staff and our visitors, even after the exhibition closes.
Artists from the permanent collection include: Ana Laura de la Garza, Annie Lopez, Asamblea de Artistas Revolucionarios de Oaxaca (ASARO), Carlos Cortéz, Consuelo Jiménez Underwood, Delilah Montoya, Eduardo Muñoz Bachs, Eric J. Garcia, Ester Hernández, Jason Garcia, Nicolás de Jesús, Noni Olabisi, Pamela Enriquez-Courts, Rosana Paulino, Rupert Garcia, Scherezade Garcia, Vincent Valdez, Yreina D. Cervantez.
