If anyone thought the New Mexico arts scene was slowing down, guess again. We still have another month+ of world-class arts programming to get through before we can take a collective breather. This month, we shift some of our focus to film, photography, and theatre, with the Way OUT Film Fest in Albuquerque (October 13-22), and Review Santa Fe Photo Festival (October 26-29), both previewed, and the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival (October 18-22). Also, on the 50th anniversary of the filming of Andy Warhol’s Lonesome Cowboys, Chelsea Weathers discusses the 1968 film and the participants’ exploitation of the Western genre in “Warhol Out West.” Jonah Winn-Lenetsky gives us a “state of the arts” of Santa Fe’s evolving theatre scene in “Santa Fe Theatre Comes Into its Own,” just as several companies head into their fall programming.
Also in this issue, Cyndi Conn of Creative Santa Fe contributes “3 Questions with Dario Robleto,” who is included in SITE Santa Fe’s grand reopening exhibition Future Shock. Don’t miss SITE’s opening party on Friday, October 6, or the free community days October 7-8! Alicia Inez Guzmán previews Frances Jacobus-Parker’s upcoming talk on artist Vija Celmins. The lecture takes place at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum Education Annex on Tuesday, October 17. In the Studio Visit, Chelsea Weathers and Clayton Porter interviewed photographer Christian Michael Filardo, who also lends his work to this issue’s cover art. Our Reviews section covers exhibitions from Albuquerque to Taos, and our Arts Calendar has expanded with a section dedicated to film events and screenings.
