New Mexico Museum of Art | St. Francis Auditorium
107 W Palace Avenue, Santa Fe NM
Join us for a screening of Through the Repellent Fence: A Land Art Film directed by Sam Wainwright Douglas. The film documents indigenous art collective Postcommodity's Repellent Fence, a two-mile-long artwork that straddled the U.S. - Mexico border. Through the Repellent Fence provides an intimate glimpse into the arduous process behind creating this ambitious artwork and how land art can bring communities together.
The film will be followed by a discussion with members of Postcommodity: Raven Chacon (Diné), Cristóbal Martínez (Mexica), and Kade Twist (Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma). The conversation will be moderated by Merry Scully, Head of Curatorial Affairs (Curator of Contemporary Art) at the New Mexico Museum of Art. This collaborative program is held in conjunction with the Decolonial Gestures symposium supported by the University of New Mexico, IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts, New Mexico Museum of Art, University of New Mexico Art Museum and Tricklock Company.
All events associated with the symposium are free and open to the public. For reservations and more information visit www.decolonialgestures.com
