Historic Santa Fe Foundation (HSFF) will host the exhibition To Keep the Name Daughter with works by Kelsey Hennegen in June 2021. The opening date is June 4, 2021 in HSFF’s El Zaguán’s sala located at 545 Canyon Road, Suite 2, Santa Fe, NM. The exhibition will continue through June 25, 2021.
The regular hours for the exhibition space are currently Monday through Friday, 9am – 5pm, or by appointment, and will be online at historicsantafe.org.
To Keep the Name Daughter is a poetry exhibit that traverses memory and grief, vulnerability, violence and intimacy, and defiant redemption. A number of poems will be displayed in the gallery, alongside a series of self portraits (trace monotype prints). Kelsey Hennegen has created a limited-edition custom poetry chapbook for the show, which contains a larger selection of her poetry. The chapbook couples poetry with personal photography–images from her childhood, portraits of the artist today. Because her work is deeply personal, she includes elements that grant the viewer access into the people, places, and circumstances that have informed her poetry.
