Gallery artists and local poets worked together over the past few months to create new works inspired by each other’s conceptual visions. Emails flew back and forth as the creative process unfolded. Poets visited ViVO Contemporary as well as the artists’ individual studios to view the artists’ work, discuss themes, and cultivate ideas. The result of this shared effort is an exciting show of new poetry and works of art inspired by and amplified through collaboration.
Giving Voice to Image 11, which runs January 5 through March 2024. Specifically, painters, printmakers, kiln glass artists and mixed media artists from ViVO Contemporary have paired with established and notable New Mexico poets. Readings by a select number of poets will take place at the gallery on Friday evening on January 5 and February 23, 2024 at 5 pm.
