On Exhibit during July 2017

Through August 5, 2017
Agnes Martin and Me
Shrouded in myth, the artist Agnes Martin (1912-2004), an iconic figure in 20 th -century art, was emotionally and artistically tortured, exquisitely sensitive yet socially inept. Canadian born, she started to make a name for herself in the New York art scene in the late 1950s and early 1960s, but in 1967, abandoned her career for a reclusive life in the New Mexico desert. She did not return to her work for nearly a decade. Several years after she began creating art again, photographer Donald Woodman met her and remained a fixture in her life from 1977 through 1984. In Agnes Martin and Me , an exhibit opening August 5 at the New Mexico History Museum (precise closing date to be determined), Woodman shares his photographs of their time together. The exhibit accompanies his new book, Agnes Martin and Me (Lyon Art Books; May 2016), which reveals the raw, unveiled person he knew in the seven rollercoaster years of their constant contact.

Imagining New Mexico
Over the past century artists have imagined and reimagined New Mexico through their work. The New Mexico Museum of Art presents an exhibition of work from the collection that investigates how artists in New Mexico have responded to key themes as they relate to the state’s identity. New Mexico, like all places, is as much an idea as it is a geographical location. This exhibition considers how the states identity was formed by various, sometimes fantastical and often contradictory interpretations of the areas land, traditions, and histories. Imagining New Mexico does not presume to be a complete survey of the history of the state, but instead a collection of fantasies about what New Mexico has come to mean for artists over time.

Light Tight : New Work by Meggan Gould and Andy Mattern
Artists Meggan Gould and Andy Mattern investigate the basic materials of photography and subvert the idea of photographic representation and the commercialization of the medium.

Lines of Thought: Drawing from Michelangelo to Now: from the British Museum
Lines of Thought: Drawing from Michelangelo to Now examines the many ways artists have used drawing as a means of recording and provoking thought from the fifteenth century to today. The internationally recognized line-up of artists featured in the exhibition is a ‘who’s who’ of artists through the centuries. The exhibition includes work by artists as diverse as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Albrecht Dürer, Piet Mondrian, Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso, Bridget Riley, Barbara Hepworth, Henry Moore, Franz Kline and Rachel Whiteread. Combining work from master artists of the past with artists working today, clearly demonstrates the common thread of drawing as the basis for creation. Drawing is one of the most effective mediums for the immediate expression and representation of an artist’s ideas. Drawing often serves as the starting point for other creative arts including painting, sculpture, even basic engineering design and architecture. The exhibition will help visitors to explore the range inherent in the medium of drawing and may even inspire them to draw as well.

Cady Wells: Ruminations
The New Mexico Museum of Art, in partnership with The Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, OK, presents the dynamic and psychologically penetrating watercolor paintings of Cady Wells (1904-1954). This group of more than 25 works features Wells’ uniquely modernist interpretations of Southwestern landforms and cultural-religious traditions. Born to a traditional, well-to-do New England family, Wells settled in northern New Mexico beginning in 1932. There, his art took on the complex layering of a spirit inspired by music, calligraphy and stained glass, but traumatized by active WWII combat, sexual intolerance, and Atomic bomb experiments at Los Alamos, just 12 miles from where he lived and painted. Such mid-century influences marked his increasingly surrealist style with equal parts rapture and disquietude.

Out of the Box: The Art of the Cigar
From the 1880s into the early 20 th century, cigar manufacturers provided an avenue for the lithographic arts to flourish. Layering up to 10 colors in a stone-lithography process and even adding gold embellishments and stamped embossings, the images sold cigars through romantic landscapes, Western adventures, and hot-blooded señoritas. In Out of the Box: The Art of the Cigar , opening Oct. 7, 2016 (precise closing date to be determined ), Palace Press Curator Thomas Leech shares primo examples to showcase the rich breadth of artwork created during the golden age of cigar box labels.

I-Witness Culture: Frank Buffalo Hyde
Artist Frank Buffalo Hyde (Onondaga/Nez Perce) believes it is the artist’s responsibility to represent the times in which they live. Transforming street art techniques into fine art practices, his humorous and acerbic narrative artworks do exactly that. In I-Witness Culture , Hyde investigates the space where Native Americans exist today: between the ancient and the new; between the accepted truth and the truth; between the known and the unknown. Hyde, who created fourteen paintings and three sculptures for I-Witness , divides his contemporary narrative into three sections: Paranormal: The Truth is Out Ther e; Selfie Skndns ; and In-Appropriate . Pre-millennium, if you asked anyone if Native Americans existed, they would tell you only in the past, in black and white photos. They are almost extinct, they would say, and their lands are gone. If you ever meet one, ask if you can touch their hair, take a picture of them as proof that you actually saw one—like Bigfoot they exist beyond the scope of normal experience. Post-millennium, Native Americans are part of the digital age, the selfie age, where if something hasn’t been posted to social media, it never happened. We are sharing information at a rate that has never been possible before in human history: We no longer just experience reality; we filter reality through our electronic devices. Today’s Native artists use technology as a tool of Indigenous activism, a means to document, and a form of validation. In a nation obsessed with sameness—afraid of difference—popular culture homogenizes indigenous cultures, "honoring" us with fashion lines, misogynistic music videos, or offensive mascots and Halloween costumes. Today, these stereotypes and romantic notions are irrelevant as a new generation of Native American artists uses social media to let the world know who they are. Today, we are the observers, as well as the observed. We are here, we are educated, and we define Indian art.

Quilts of Southwest China
Chinese quilts have received little attention from scholars, collectors, or museums.  The examples featured here offer an introduction based on new research by a bi-national consortium of American and Chinese museums, including participation by the Museum of International Folk Art.  Embodying layers of history, identity, and expertise, these quilts reveal new insights into the contemporary lives of minority communities adapting to a period of great change in China.

Voices of the Counterculture in the Southwest
At a time when concerts and gatherings on the West Coast gave birth to 1967’s infamous “Summer of Love,” New Mexico was experiencing its own social and environmental revolution depicted in Voices of Counterculture in the Southwest . On display through February 11, 2018, the exhibition spans the decades of the 60s and 70s exploring this influx of young people to New Mexico and the subsequent collision of cultures. Through archival footage, oral histories, photography, ephemera and artifacts, the exhibition examines this cultural revolution and asks how these forms of rebellion inform the ways we think about contemporary social and political questions of what it means to be an engaged citizen.

Setting the Standard: The Fred Harvey Company and Its Legacy
Will Rogers noted that Fred Harvey “kept the West in food—and wives.” But the company’s Harvey Girls are by no means its only legacy. From the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway’s 1879 arrival in New Mexico to the 1970 demolition of Albuquerque’s Alvarado Hotel, the Fred Harvey name and its company’s influence have been felt across New Mexico, not to mention the American West. The company and its New Mexico establishments served as the stage on which people such as Mary Colter were able to fashion an “authentic” tourist experience, along with Herman Schweizer who helped drive the direction of Native American jewelry and crafts as an industry. Setting the Standard: The Fred Harvey Company and Its Legacy , a new section that joins the New Mexico History Museum’s main exhibit, Telling New Mexico: Stories from Then and Now, helps tell those stories. Opening December 7, Setting the Standard uses artifacts from the museum’s collection, images from the Palace of the Governors Photo Archives and loans from other museums and private collectors. Focusing on the rise of the Fred Harvey Company as a family business and events that transpired specifically in the Land of Enchantment, the tale will leave visitors with an understanding of how the Harvey experience resonates in our Southwest today.
