New Mexico painter Willy Bo Richardson shares how discovering real world limitations allows him greater flexibility in the moment.

“What’s beautiful about painting is that it does everything that you want it to in that moment. So you have the materials, you have the artist and you have the action and they are all coming together instantaneously.”

The Producer of PBS art series ¡COLORES! is Tara Walch; Unit Coordinator is Kathy Wimmer. Executive Producer is Michael Kamins. Major funding for ¡COLORES! is provided in part by Frederick Hammersley Foundation.

british museum logo New Mexico Museum of Art: Renaissance to Goya: prints and drawings from Spain

This exhibition brings together for the first time prints and drawings by Spanish and other European artists working in Spain from the mid 16th to the early 19th century. It provides a compelling overview of more than 200 years of artistic production, including many works which have never before been on display.  The New Mexico Museum of Art is the only American venue in this international tour.

Beginning with works by 16th-century artists working in and around Madrid, the selection progresses chronologically and by region. Spain’s ‘Golden Age’ (the 17th century) is represented by important artists such as Diego Velázquez, Vicente Carducho and Alonso Cano in Madrid, Bartolomé Murillo and Francisco de Zubarán in Seville, and José de Ribera in Spanish Naples.

Turning to the 18th century, key works by Francisco de Goya, his contemporaries and foreign artists such as the Italians Giambattista Tiepolo and his sons demonstrate how printmaking and drawing greatly increased during the period, forever changing the artistic landscape of Spain.

This exhibition is presented by the British Museum in collaboration with the New Mexico Museum of Art.

In July 2014, SITElines becomes a dynamic new part of SITE’s year-round exhibition programming and signature biennial show.

SITE Santa Fe Introduces SITElines Logo 668x239 SITElines SITE Santa Fe signature biennial show A new biennial exhibition series that explores contemporary art from Nunavut to Tierra del Fuego  July 20, 2014 – January 2015

Opening Festivities July 17-19

Opened in 1995 to present what was then the only international contemporary art biennial in the United States, SITE Santa Fe was born at a time when there were only a handful of biennials in the world.  From the very beginning, SITE established a commitment to its risk-taking and visionary perspective.

After two years of research and a thoughtful reconsideration of SITE’s signature international Biennial, 2014 will launch a reimagined biennial exhibition series titled SITElines with a new focus on contemporary art from the Americas.

In many ways, Santa Fe itself is a fusion of the Americas.  Many layers of history and culture are embedded in the land in Santa Fe and visible in our present-day population. First Native American land, then a Spanish Kingdom, a Mexican Province, and an American Territory, all before statehood, New Mexico is a rich microcosm of the Americas. SITE Santa Fe is uniquely situated, literally and metaphorically, to explore the territory of the Americas—it is a direction that is both timely and specific to SITE’s vision, place, and history.

In July 2014, SITElines becomes a dynamic new part of SITE’s year-round exhibition programming as a new signature biennial show.

SITElines.2014Unsettled Landscapes

This show will look to the urgencies, political conditions, and historical narratives that inform the work of contemporary artists across North, Central and South America. Through three themes — landscape, territory and trade — the exhibition will illuminate the connections among representations of the land, movement across the land, and economies and resources derived from the land.

Further information on sitelines.2014 will be announced throughout 2013 and 2014.
