Performance in the Museum With Artist Eric-Paul Riege
June 2, 2018
2 pm to 3 pm
Join us for a performance in Because It’s Time: Unraveling Race and Place in NM with Eric-Paul Riege! Eric-Paul was born in 1994 in Gallup, New Mexico and lives there now. He is a weaver and performance artist who also creates what he calls, “wearable art”. Eric-Paul notes, “I am inspired by being present through my mind, body and beliefs. That happens through remembering my history and my people and my family—how it has gifted me my identity and worldview and craft.” Eric-Paul has two weavings on display in the exhibition and they are part of a broader performance piece that will take place in the museum on June 2nd at 2 pm. Altogether, the work is called let the Holy ppl watch over U and Me, weaving dance (fig. 2.)
This event is free with the purchase of museum admission.
