Art Meets History: Technologies of the Spirit
On view June 11 – September 3, 2022
Albuquerque, New Mexico
“Art Meets History: Technologies of the Spirit” is the second of the two-part series curated by Ric Kasini Kadour and Alicia Inez Guzmán, Ph.D.
This exhibition showcases artists who bring together historic content with contemporary art practices. As we move into the middle of the 21st century, how will we reconcile the past and forge a new future? Each of the artists in “Technologies of the Spirit” weaves elements of 20th-century art and culture into contemporary artworks that invite the viewer to contemplate their place in the landscape and their role in society. At the heart of each work is a rethinking of old ways of making one’s way through the world.
