public works July 2–August 15, 2021
Vital Spaces / MAIDA / Warehouse 21
Intersections is a group exhibition that takes place at intersections.vitalspaces.org and highlights numerous points of connection among the ninety-seven contemporary works of art and thirty artists exhibited. All featured artists currently live or work in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Intersections.vitalspaces.org houses an interactive sorting tool allowing visitors to form hundreds of mini group exhibitions around shared themes, media, and other connections as well as newly commissioned videos bringing together dance, poetry, visual art, and music. Check back over the course of the summer for new video releases.
Posters, banners, and signs in public parks and local businesses around Santa Fe advertise the website while visually saturating the city with images from the exhibition, bringing the virtual show out into physical space. These interventions into public space will be up through Sunday, August 15, while the website will remain live in perpetuity.
Funded by the City of Santa Fe Arts & Culture Department Digital Collaborative Impact Grant, Intersections directs marketing funds to local contemporary artists, many of whom have had their livelihoods impacted by the pandemic. Please consider tipping an artist if you have been inspired by the artwork.
