Explore Diego Romero Vs The End Of Art - MIAC in 3D

To kick off 2021, the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture launched a virtual tour of the current exhibition, Diego Romero vs. the End of Art!

Diego Romero vs. the End of Art is a dynamic exploration of a Cochiti Pueblo artist’s journey through life as depicted through his work. For decades, California-born Cochiti potter Diego Romero has created renowned historical and autobiographical artworks. Acclaimed for his neo-Mimbres pottery illustrating Pueblo Indian history, his father’s Korean War stories, and his relationships with women, family, substances and art, Romero’s work lays bare the life of one Native artist and Native history.

Museum of International Folk Art

Tune in to the Museum of International Folk Art's page on December 13th at 7PM for a program celebrating yuletide traditions in New Mexico! Click below for more information!

Enjoy the fabulous and multicultural history of New Mexico’s holiday traditions! This festive program features 6 short documentaries that were created for the exhibition Música Buena: Hispano Folk Music of New Mexico ​(in the Hispanic Heritage Wing at MOIFA) and the concurrent Música Buena exhibition in the Wonders on Wheels Mobile Museum.

New Mexico’s musical and dramatic traditions that are celebrated during the holiday season developed over hundreds of years beginning with traditions in medieval Spain that were then brought to the colonies. Here in New Mexico each has developed with local and regional influences. The Matachines dances are performed by the Hispano, Pueblo and Genízaro people of New Mexico. Throughout the state the Matachines dances and ceremonies are enjoyed on December 12, Feast Day of Our Immaculate Conception and Our Lady of Guadalupe and are also performed in many locations on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Las Posadas (The Inns) and Los Pastores (The Shepherds) are performed during the advent period leading up the Christmas Eve and Christmas day. Two traditions ringing in the New Year are the Los Comanches dances in Ranchos de Taos and the celebration of Día de los Manueles (The Day of Immanuel), or Dar los Días (The Giving of Days) in which houses are serenaded with music and dance to welcome the New Year, the latter are accompanied by the symbolic killing of the old year.

I just read that your online auction will only split money made with the Native artists represented in the auction. Given how hard the Native population in this state have been hit by Covid, I would have hoped this event could be a fundraiser for their benefit...
Ditto, ditto, DITTO !
Important collections & worthwhile organization. Albeit that like Williamsburg, VA the city itself is an imaginary & thus in reality a fundamentally false & phoney represtation.
Good evening folks
