Order 2016 Santa Fe Guide

Santa Fe is far from ocean waves, but there’s a noticeable current of excitement about contemporary art that flows annually in June. That’s when CURRENTS International New Media Festival takes over El Museo Cultural de Santa Fe and a variety of other Santa Fe venues from now through June 26.

Since 2002, this feast for the eyes has entertained art-lovers with a pageant of cutting-edge curiosities and craftsmanship. Video and new media installations, performance art, live music, artist presentations, panels and workshops, outdoor events and digital dome programs all captivate the creative eye and mind––and best of all, most CURRENTS 2016 events are free to the public!

For the following two weeks, Santa Fe will host an international roster of new media artists exhibiting exceptional and extraordinary work and visitors eager to experience this distinct festival. This year features 100 artists from 18 U.S. states and 19 countries.
