¡Aquí Estamos: The Heart of Arte!

March 5, 2017December 31, 2018

Art Museum hours and prices HERE

¡Aquí Estamos: The Heart of Arte! celebrates the NHCC Art Museum’s growing permanent collection with a revitalized vibe and a brand new selection of works. This exhibition was a collaborative project as the entire NHCC Visual Arts staff and interns combed through the collection and worked together to decide which pieces should welcome in 2017. This sampling explores the contributions of these artists and how each work can serve as a reminder of the heart that thrives in strong and resilient communities.

The collection contains over 2,500 artworks by Hispanic, Chicana/o, and Latina/o, artists from around the globe most of which have been generously donated to the museum by artists and collectors. It reflects the diversity of Latina/o art and expression in all of its vibrancy, creativity, pointed humor and social consciousness. The National Hispanic Cultural Center Art Museum exists to support and engage the work of these artists and share their creations and their stories with the broader community.

La Ultima Exhibición

February 16November 11

NHCC Art Museum Community Gallery

The La Ultima Exhibición, curated by Augustine Romero, features visual interpretations of Rudolfo Anaya’s celebrated book, Bless Me, Ultima (1972)-a portrait of life in rural New Mexico as seen through the eyes of a young boy during World War II. Anaya tells of the spiritual healer, Ultima, as she guides young Antonio on a magical and moral journey in this novel that has inspired artists for decades. Romero curated a previous iteration of this exhibition in 2006 at the South Broadway Cultural Center and the NHCC Art Museum is thrilled to host the re-imagined version twelve years later.

Featured artists include: Jesús ” Cimi” Alvarado, George C’de Baca, Sylvia Ortiz Domney, Christian Michael Gallegos, Roberto Gallegos, Eric Garcia, Kristina Gonzales, Nacho Jaramillo, Al Na’ir Lara, Chisim Bernal Lujan, Oscar Lozoya, Chris Ray Melendez, El Moisés, Derrick Montez, Paloma Paz Nava, Gabriel Luis Powers, Chris Rivera, Rebecca H. Hernandez Rosser, and Catalina Salinas.

Augustine Romero is an acclaimed visual artist and the curator of the South Broadway Cultural Center and the Kimo Theater for the City of Albuquerque.

People Powered: New Mexicans and Social Movements

April 6October 19

Curated by Humans of New Mexico, this exhibition features photo portraits and first person stories of everyday New Mexicans and their experiences in social movements. The intent of the exhibition is to engage community in conversation about how social movements have shaped and defined New Mexico and how New Mexicans have influenced social justice work beyond our state borders. There is a rich tradition of social justice initiatives in New Mexico. These serve as unique case studies promoting grass-roots, distinctive solutions based on the philosophy of people power. This exhibit is a community-wide effort to capture the complex issues that affect our communities and voice the everyday practices of resistance. Agency through testimonials is at the heart of “People Powered: New Mexicans and Social Movements.”

Because It’s Time: Unraveling Race and Place in NM

May 4, 2018February 28, 2019

Art Museum hours and prices HERE

Because It’s Time: Unraveling Race and Place in NM examines race and identity in New Mexico and is a space for artistic expression that grapples with the complexities of who we are, how we are understood, and how that impacts the way we live (or don’t) in a variety of places.  The exhibition features approximately 26 newly created artworks by artists with different experiences in New Mexico alongside works from the National Hispanic Cultural Center Art Museum’s permanent collection. All of the artworks delve into  race and place through an intersectional lens alongside gender, sexuality, class, nationality, citizenship status, etc. from local, national, and international perspectives.

This museum exhibition included much contemplation by the Visual Arts program staff and interns about what it might look like to create an exhibit that relinquished a bit of institutional control and placed it in the hands of the artists. Many of the works were not seen in their completed form until just weeks before the opening. The process continues to be a learning experience and the hope is to maintain an environment of openness and education, for the staff and our visitors, even after the exhibition closes.

We are so honored to work with this amazing group of artists.

Invited artists include: Adelina Cruz, Adriana Ortiz-Carmona, Apolo Gomez Autumn Chacon, Aziza Murray, Baochi Zhang, Brandee Caoba, Corey Pickett, Cynthia Cook, Earl McBride, Ehren Kee Natay, Eliza Naranjo Morse, Eric-Paul Riege, Erin Currier, Fatemeh Baigmoradi, Grace Rosario Perkins, Hamed Marwan, Jami Porter Lara, Jessica Chao, Joanna Keane Lopez, John Boyce, Lucrecia Troncoso, Monica Kennedy, Nanibah Chacon, Rose B. Simpson, and Zahra Marwan.

Artists from the permanent collection include: Ana Laura de la Garza, Annie Lopez, Asamblea de Artistas Revolucionarios de Oaxaca (ASARO), Carlos Cortéz, Consuelo Jiménez Underwood, Delilah Montoya, Eduardo Muñoz Bachs, Eric J. Garcia, Ester Hernández, Jason Garcia, Nicolás de Jesús, Noni Olabisi, Pamela Enriquez-Courts, Rosana Paulino, Rupert Garcia, Scherezade Garcia, Vincent Valdez, Yreina D. Cervantez.
