Solidarity Now! 1968 Poor People’s Campaign
New Mexico History Museum

Supported by the CVS Health Foundation, Solidarity Now! is a Smithsonian Institution traveling show based on a National Museum of African American History and Culture exhibition. It investigates the factors surrounding the 1968 Poor People’s Campaign, which was a six-week, multi-ethnic, live-in demonstration at the nation’s capital, called Resurrection City. Organized by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. prior to his assassination, the movement focused on poverty as a human rights issue. A New Mexico delegation, led by land grant activist Reies López Tijerina, formed part of the Western Caravan from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. Visitors will see photographs, objects, documentaries, and a 3D printed model of Resurrection City.

Exhibition located in the Herzstein Gallery.

Horizons: Weaving Between the Lines with Diné Textiles
Museum of Indian Arts and Culture
Opening July 16, 2023 - Masterpieces Gallery

The horizon line is both a point of connection—between sky and earth—and a separation of space. Horizons: Weaving Between the Lines with Diné Textiles explores the connections between weaving and photography as modes of engagement with place in the American Southwest. By situating these two media in conversation, this exhibition examines each as a way of seeing and knowing Dinétah, the Navajo homeland. Building upon previous and ongoing collaborations with the Navajo Nation, this landmark exhibition brings land into view as an “object” or site of inquiry, both historically and into the present.
