Action Abstraction Redefined
Fri, Jul 28, 2017 thru Sun, Jul 28, 2019
ongoing 11:59 PM - 11:59 PM
Location: IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts

Action Abstraction Redefined features artworks from MoCNA's permanent collection created in the 1960s and 70s. These early works are a visual testimony to the Institute's revolutionary approach to art education that sparked a cultural change within Native Art by defying the standards imposed upon by the dominant society since the 18th century.

IAIA students during the 60s and 70s were exposed to modern art movements such as Cubism, Abstract Expressionism, and Colorfield, and were encouraged to study and experiment with cultural designs, colors, and techniques from their own heritage. The result of this artistic approach was an outpouring of creative expression that received regional and national attention.

Among the artists included in this exhibition are George Morrison (Ojibwe), Earl Biss (Crow), T.C. Cannon (Caddo/Kiowa), Fritz Scholder (Mission/Luiseño), Earl Eder (Yanktonai Sioux), Neil Parsons (Blackfeet), Kevin Red Star (Crow), Connie Red Star (Crow), George Burdeau (Blackfeet), Ralph Aragon (San Felipe/Acoma Pueblos), Henry Hank Gobin (Tulalip/Snohomish), Alice Loiselle (Chippewa), and Carl Tubby (Choctaw). This exhibition will explore how these works fit within the idea of art movements that occurred in Santa Fe as well as art styles that were part of the mainstream art world.

Some of these artists approached their chosen medium in a direct, intuitive and spontaneous way, and as a result their paintings and drawings are very intense and expressive. Several of their works seem to express the artist's inner feelings and emotions. Drips, splatters, and accidental gestures are part of their compositions. Others were interested in experimenting with biomorphic shapes reminding of forms inspired by nature. Some of their drawings are characterized by fields of pure flat colors, and reflect their interest in the effect of color on human perception. visit our website
Rolande Souliere: Form and Content
Tue, Jan 9, 2018 thru Sun, Jan 27, 2019
ongoing 11:59 PM - 11:59 PM
Location: IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts

Working across painting, sculpture, photography, collage and recently screen printing, Rolande Souilere's (Michipicoten First Nation) art practice is primarily installation that combines abstraction with organic forms, the hand crafted and the assisted readymade.

Through the use of Ojibway, Cree, and Inuit syllabics, Souliere utilizes aspects of this writing system to engage in ideas about space, color, form, symbolism, surface movement, and language. Her new wall painting is an exploration into the parallels and the multifaceted ways in which simple geometric building blocks such as chevrons, circles, and rectangles have a profound affinity with Indigenous language and culture and abstraction in western art.

Todos Santos

Todos Santos

Todos Santos (All Saints in Spanish) is a chocolate shop opened by Hayward Simoneaux in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1999. He began shaping his confections in the shape of Milagros, "small charmlike silver and gold offerings made to saints" in traditional Hispanic cultures, using custom molds and coatings of silver and gold leaf. Simoneaux's skills with the materials were refined as a fine art framer. Todos Santos chocolates are Valrhona-based, though fine packaged chocolates such as Knipschildt and Michel Cluizel originating elsewhere are also sold. The store also offers its own truffles "in flavors like black pepper, burn caramel, and red chile-tangerine", enclosed in "ornate" and "colorful" packaging.

Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi
The crowning achievement of Archbishop Lamy's church construction in New Mexico, the Saint Francis Cathedral was built between 1869 and 1886 and designed in the French Romanesque Revival style. Although its design contrasts the surrounding adobe buildings, the cathedral remains one of Santa Fe's most celebrated landmarks. Built on the site of a church that was destroyed during the Pueblo Revolt of 1680 and replacing a later adobe church called La Parroquia, the Saint Francis Cathedral was created with stone from local quarries. Portions of La Parroquia remain in the form of the Chapel of Our Lady of the Rosary, which houses a wooden statue of the Virgin known as Our Lady of Peace. The statue was first brought to Santa Fe in 1625 and was returned to the city by the armies of Don Diego de Vargas during the re-conquest of 1692. In 2005, Pope Benedict XVI officially elevated the church to the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi.
