Art Meets History: Many Worlds Are Born
February 19, 2022 – May 14, 2022
“Millions of worlds are born, evolve, and pass away into nebulous, unmeasured skies; and there is still eternity. Time always.” This exhibition takes a cue from the late Chicano writer, Rudolfo Anaya, who is best known for his fictional, but still true, portrait of New Mexico, Bless Me, Última. Co-curator Alicia Inez Guzman says, “The light, the land, the mysticism, and the people were all his subjects – kinfolk in a constellation that spanned generations. Along the same lines, the sprawling content of this group exhibition also spans multiple generations and understandings of New Mexico’s many histories, worlds born from beauty, violence, and a deep sense of place.” In partnership with the Art Meets History initiative and Albuquerque Museum Photo Archives, 516 ARTS will present this exhibition that brings the pasts of various cultures in our area into the current moment through a process of historical investigation and contemporary art practices.
The exhibition is co-curated by Ric Kasini Kadour, Alicia Inez Guzmán, and L. Kasimu Harris.

One thought on “The Blue Swallow”
I love this piece. I have spent much of my life in motels and on the road, for me, an important part of America is the transient part that exists between here and there, as we come and go endlessly seeking the Big Rock Candy Mountain, trying to find our way back home or to find a new home. For many of us “anywhere I hang my hat” really is home.
