The New Mexico Field Guide is a guide to all things arts and culture across the state. Within, you’ll find maps of major arts districts across Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Taos, and listings of arts and culture businesses, organizations, and creative professionals statewide to help you navigate the New Mexico arts community and keep your finger on the pulse.
This year’s guide features Southwest Contemporary’s fourth annual 12 New Mexico Artists to Know Now. From an open call to artists submit work in any media, guest jurors Louis Grachos (executive director, SITE Santa Fe) and Marisa Sage (director and curatore, NMSU Art Museum) selected twelve artists whose works speak to the compelling, vibrant, and challenging work being created in our home state. This series of profiles provides an “insider’s view” of the contemporary arts landscape and the premier talents continuously emerging across the state.
This year, we also celebrate significant arts anniversaries and invite you to explore the tiny arts outpost of Magdalena. An extensive arts calendar section, has more openings, exhibitions, workshops, and talks than you could possibly fit into your schedule.
