New Mexico A-i-R Exhibition

New Mexico A-i-R Exhibition Opens on Monday, October 11 - Indigenous Peoples Day

New Mexico A-i-R: IAIA Artist Residents in Visual Dialogue (Oct. 11, 2021-Jan. 29, 2022) features the work of 10 Native American artists based in New Mexico who have participated or are currently participating in the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) Artist-in-Residence (A-i-R) program. A collaboration between IAIA and the Millicent Rogers Museum, New Mexico A-i-R considers the cross-cultural and interspecies connections in the ways that this group of artists reflects their relationships to their homes in artworks created in a variety of media. As the first installment of the Millicent Rogers Museum's "New Mexico Artists" series, the exhibition offers a unique opportunity for direct dialogue between the visual languages that these artists use to convey concepts about both their complex identities and their place-based exchanges.
