Info Session: Art + History Artist Lab

Wednesday, February 24, 2021 5pm – 6pm


Artist Lab: Art Meets History in New Mexico (deadline February 28) is a unique opportunity for artists who are interested in bringing historic content into their contemporary practices to work with and learn from stellar faculty from across the country.

Presented as a collaboration between 516 ARTS, Kolaj Institute, and Albuquerque Museum Photo Archives, the Artist Lab looks at how our divergent histories of race, conflict, and colonialism inform how we imagine our futures.

Artists are encouraged to attend this information session with special guest Ric Kasini Kadour, recent recipient of a Curatorial Fellowship from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, to learn more and get all their questions answered in time to apply.

The 4-week online program consists of 12-15 sessions scheduled around participants’ schedules. 516 ARTS has scholarships available for artists from New Mexico, artists from Mexico whose work focuses on the US/Mexico border, and artists who are Native American, Alaskan Native, or First Nations.

A goal of the lab is a proposal for a body of artwork to be considered for a group exhibition at 516 ARTS in 2022.
