Book Reading and Signing: Jaima Chevalier and her Book “Fringe”

November 8

6:30 pm

Jaima Chevalier’s book Fringe is a tribute to flamenco legend María Benitez and includes almost 200 rare and exclusive images from locally famous to world-renowned photographers, all showcasing Benítez’s central role in dance history. Beníitez is an iconic figure in American flamenco. Her riveting story begins with the complexity of her mixed Native American and Puerto Rican heritage followed by her extraordinary journey as a young woman leaving her home on the outskirts of Taos Pueblo to study flamenco in Spain. From the inherent irony of her identity as a Native American woman striving to master the art of a culture that had colonized the Southwestern United States, she grew into an artist driven to forge her own way in the world, starting a business, , a non-profit institution, a school, and a professional touring company. Her illustrious career, from appearances in film and television to stages across the world, is an inspiration to artists, students of history, and seekers of core human truths. Her ability to overcome both racial and gender discrimination made her equally comfortable on the Metropolitan Opera stage as well as dancing around a gypsy campfire–all coalescing to make her story one that dances straight into the heart of what it means to be an American original.

Jaima Chevalier, a Santa Fe native, is the author of five books including La Conquistadora: Unveiling the History of Santa Fe’s Six Hundred Year Old Religious Icon and Nativo (with Oliver Galvan-De La Cruz). Her documentary films include Veiled Lightning/Native Voltage (director) and El Corazon de Santa Fe (Producer).

Join us in the Salon Ortega of the historic History and Literary Arts Building on the NHCC Campus.

There Must Be Other Names for the River

November 16

7 pm (doors open at 6 pm)

516 ARTS, the National Hispanic Cultural Center, and UNM Art & Ecology Program artists Marisa Demarco, Dylan McLaughlin, and Jessica Zeglin present There Must Be Other Names for the River. This composition for six singers is based on streamflow data from the river known today as the Rio Grande. Each singer channels the river, representing a point where flows were observed and recorded. Arranged in the shape of the water body within the performance space, the singers’ voices change in intensity with the flows and distort over time as human interference is felt along the length of the river. After embodying past decades, the singers project possible futures for the voice of the river and the bodies through which its waters flow. The artists say, “The Rio Grande is itself a living being who has experiences over time including birth, growth, and possibly death…. By listening and embodying, can we change our relationships with the river and see beyond its uses to humans? Can we hear the river as more than a resource?” The original sound art performance is presented in conjunction with Species in Peril Along the Rio Grande, an exhibition currently on view at 516 ARTS.

Free public event

Book Reading and Signing: Norma Elia Cantú, Cabañuelas

November 17

2 pm

Norma Elia Cantú will read from her new novel, Cabañuelas (University of New Mexico Press, 2019), the successor to her award-winning Canícula: Snapshots of a Girlhood en la Frontera, which chronicles her childhood experiences on the border. Nena leaves Laredo, Texas, and moves to Madrid, Spain, to research the historical roots of traditional fiestas in Laredo. Immersing herself in post-Franco Spain and its rich history, its food, music, and fiestas, Nena finds herself falling for Paco, a Spaniard. Nena’s research and experiences teach her about who she is, where she comes from, and what is important to her. As her work comes to a close, Nena must decide where she can best be true to her entire self: in Spain with Paco or in Laredo, her home, where her job and family await her return. After reading, Cantú will talk about the craft of writing a novel—in celebration of National Novel Writing Month (November).

This event is free and open to the public

Presented in conjunction with the University of New Mexico Press
