Albuquerque, New Mexico
516 ARTS, in partnership with Kolaj Institute, invited selected artists from New Mexico and around the world to reflect on our shifting world using collage, a medium that has been historically used by artists to directly engage with the visual narratives of their time and to reimagine the stories that have been told.
Forty artists from nine countries and several Indigenous nations offer a variety of perspectives, including artists from Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Argentina, Canada, France, Germany, as well as Salish-Kootenai/Métis-Cree/Sho-Ban, Oglala/Lakota, Tlingit/Nisgaá, and Seneca Nation.
The exhibition is presented as part of our Museum from Home initiative during the pandemic and as a featured exhibition of Kolaj LIVE Online:
