MARCH – SEPTEMBER 2020
the Sanitary Tortilla Factory will be hosting an artist led project in creating a large public art piece to be included in the International Albuquerque Sunport’s public art collection. The collaborative artist team will re-envision the graphic content of each letter of ALBUQUERQUE. Using the rich history of Albuquerque (1300-present) artists will create sophisticated graphic symbols of the region’s complex histories. Popular cultural icons will share space with the buried histories that uniquely honor the history and cultural diversity of what we call Albuquerque.
WORKSHOPS + ARTIST MENTORSHIPS –
Finding the truth? Reimagining our histories WORKSHOPS
sheri crider will host a series of workshops in regional juvenile justice detention centers. The workshops are focused on visual narratives, and dismantling systematic, structural histories that undermine equity and opportunity in our families and communities. Two system-impacted student artists from this series will continue to participate in a post-release studio at the Sanitary Tortilla Factory.
DESCRIPTION OF STUDIO:
Finding the truth? Reimagining our histories and future STUDIO
Two student artists from the community will join the system impacted artists in an intensive studio focused series of workshops and events. Visiting artists, NANI CHACON (ABQ ), JASON GARCIA (SANTA CLARA PUEBLO), ZAHRA MARWAN(ABQ) will share their practice and work with students in developing finished work for the public art component at the Albuquerque Sunport. The group will use working studio discussions, field trips to museums, visits to critical sites as a backdrop to create the core images that represent the complex history of this region.
COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT – A group of core images created by the group will be exhibited in a physical and digital crowdsource event. The artists of the project will engage the community in the history and images of Albuquerque in creating our final content.
