Where do we stand?

April 8, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


The public is invited to a free, online talk titled, Where do we stand? Alicia Inez Guzmán on the History of New Mexico. To acknowledge land and histories of land use in New Mexico is to acknowledge the generations of stewards who’ve inhabited this place and the waves of settlers brought with colonization. How to we speak about those histories truthfully and with care? How do artists draw from this entangled and complex past? And, in what ways do all of us create new narratives about place that move us into the future? Guzmán will speak about the multiple, overlapping, and contradictory histories of land use in New Mexico through the lens of this region’s visual culture.

This event is presented in conjunction with an online educational program (Artist Lab: Art Meets History in New Mexico)designed to foster the integration of history into contemporary art practices. It is presented as a collaboration between 516 Arts, Art Meets History initiative, Kolaj Institute, and the Albuquerque Museum Photography Archives. Alicia Inez Guzmán is one of the faculty in this program, which looks at how our divergent histories of race, conflict, and colonialism inform how we imagine our futures.
