EXHIBITION OPENING!
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
Diego Romero Vs. the End of Art

Diego Romero vs. the End of Art will be a dynamic exploration of a Cochiti Pueblo artist’s journey through life as depicted through his work.  For decades, California born Cochiti potter Diego Romero has created renowned historical and autobiographical artworks. Acclaimed for his neo-Mimbres pottery illustrating Pueblo Indian history, his father’s Korean War stories, and his relationships with women, family, substances and art, Romero’s work lays bare the life of one Native artist and Native history.  The exhibition narrative will be a biographical and culture history in conjunction with a conflict against a shadowy figure known only as the End of Art. Throughout the exhibition video presentations will feature interviews with the artist and others detailing his path and the evolution of his art. This will be one of the largest assemblages of Romero’s ceramic works and his lesser known multi-media drawings. Per conversations with the artist, several family members will be included as part of his story and as necessary allies in his battle with the nebulous nemesis, the End of Art. In an effort to engage a younger audience and the non-traditional museum visitor, the catalog will be a hybrid of a traditional volume combined with elements of a graphic novel. This method will convey Romero’s stories of cultural and personal endurance. It is hoped that Native youth in particular will relate to their story through art.  The goals of this exhibition are to share Romero’s unique and engaging stories of life and struggle through a cultural and pop culture lens, and the visitor will learn of Native survival and ultimately celebration.

Pueblo Pottery and Embroidery Demonstration
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
with Michael Bancroft (Ohkay Owingeh) and Shawn Tafoya (Santa Clara)

Michael Bancroft is a micaceous pottery instructor who discovered his love of clay in 2004. He feels his inspiration comes from his children’s grandmother, Mary Sedillo, and his grandmother, Emily Povijua, both of whom made pottery. He has taken and  instructed many art classes at the Poeh Cultural Center.

 

While also a skilled potter, Shawn Tafoya will demonstrate embroidery, another of his passions. Although a traditionalist in terms of materials and technique, his embroidery is strikingly innovative. Ideas for his work come from different sources, including nature, his Pueblo and other tribal groups, pop culture and his family’s art.

Hardship, Greed, and Sorrow: An Officerís Photo Album of 1866 New Mexico Territory
New Mexico History Museum
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Please join us for a talk by author Devorah Romanek, joined by Hannah Abelbeck, New Mexico History Museum Photo Archivist, and UNM Professor of American Studies Jennifer Denetdale, on this compelling book which captures a fraught and complex moment in the history of the American Southwest, and includes a Preface written by Daniel Kosharek, previous Photo Curator at the New Mexico History Museum, Santa Fe, NM.

In the aftermath of the Civil War, the New Mexico Territory endured painful years of hardship and ongoing strife. During this turbulent period, a US military officer stationed in the territory assembled an album of photographs, a series of still shots taken by one or more anonymous photographers. Now, some 150 years later, this remarkable volume reproduces the anonymous officer’s “souvenir album” in its totality.

Offering an important glimpse of the American Southwest in the mid-1860s, the photo album places the photographs in historical context in connection to the Civil War and Reconstruction periods, including the French intervention in New Mexico and the internment of Navajos at the Bosque Redondo Indian Reservation.

In addition to containing what may be the earliest extant photographs of Navajo Indians, the album features both studio and field images of U.S. Army officers, Mexican politicians, and various sites throughout New Mexico. 

Books for purchase will be made available from the Museum Foundation shop, located in the History Museum.

Free event-bottled water only please

Yokai: Ghosts & Demons of Japan- Public Opening
Museum of International Folk Art
Exhibit Opening

Join us for the exhibit opening of  Yokai: Ghosts & Demons of Japan, on December 8, 2019, with free family friendly events, and a ghost house from 1-4pm.

Vivid in Japanese art and imagination are creatures that are at once ghastly and comical. Yokai generally refers to demons, ghosts, shapeshifters, and “strange” and supernatural beings. Specific creatures are commonly associated with classical literature, folklore, theatrical performances, festivals, art, and other forms of expressive culture. Yokai are also prevalent in contemporary Japanese popular culture; you find them in manga (comics), anime (animation), and character-based games such as Pokémon (“pocket monster”). In addition to participatory gallery crafts, the exhibition will include an immersive, (a Japanese “ghost house”), a popular form of entertainment in Japanese amusement parks.

Pueblo Pottery Demonstration Series
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
with Lorraine Gala Lewis (Laguna/Taos/Hopi)

When she began working with clay, Gala Lewis embraced a contemporary style, but eventually incorporated figurative form into her work. Later, after studying Pre-Columbian art forms, she delved into that time period. "The work is a true reflection of self, what was felt by that individual at that time in the environment," notes Gala Lewis. "The evolution of shape, form and design reflected changes of lifestyle."
