Imagining New Mexico
On display through Sep 17, 2017 at the New Mexico Museum of Art
Over the past century artists have imagined and reimagined New Mexico through their work. The New Mexico Museum of Art presents an exhibition of work from the collection that investigates how artists in New Mexico have responded to key themes as they relate to the state’s identity.
New Mexico, like all places, is as much an idea as it is a geographical location. This exhibition considers how the states identity was formed by various, sometimes fantastical and often contradictory interpretations of the areas land, traditions, and histories. Imagining New Mexico does not presume to be a complete survey of the history of the state, but instead a collection of fantasies about what New Mexico has come to mean for artists over time.
