City of Albuquerque--MuraLOVE
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Mural - Call for Artists

As a continuation of the City of Albuquerque’s MuraLOVE program, the Albuquerque Arts Board and the MLK Mural Art Selection Committee announces a Call for Artists to create a mural art work for one or more concrete walls near the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial located at Tijeras and 1st Street in downtown Albuquerque. The selection committee for this competition/commission invites artists to propose a mural theme and mural style that furthers the awareness of Dr. King's legacy. The mural should activate the walls of the site and complement the existing MLK Memorial.

It is the intent of this Call for Artists to directly reach out to, and received proposals from, Black, Indigenous and Persons of Color (BIPOC) artists, as well as artists not already represented in the City of Albuquerque Public Art Collection and artists who have not ever applied for, or received, a public art commission.

WHAT WE WROTE ON THE WATER-- an installation at Vital Spaces on St. Mikes by Axle Contemporary participating artists Miriam Sagan and Isabel Winson-Sagan.

BY APPOINTMENT ONLY and in accordance with COVID-safe guidelines. Call/email 505-231-1922 / [email protected] to schedule a viewing.

What We Wrote on The Water is a video installation constructed from the poetry of borders, drumming in a dream, the scarce commodity of water in the desert, and gestures in ink.

In a dark enclosed womb of space, the video projects on three walls. It features the Japanese art of suminagashi, spoken poetry, and percussive drums. A large vase, filled with water, sits in the center. The projection overlaps the glass, creating new shadows and reflections. This is an immersive experience, playing with materials such as ink and glass, and the metaphor of water as the unconscious mind.

Info: https://www.vitalspaces.org/exhibitions/2020/12/29/what-we-wrote-on-the-water
What We Wrote on the Water explores the dialectical flow between creator and viewer, form and meaning, being both on the surface of the water and under it. The viewer leaves refreshed, having temporarily been elsewhere.

We just heard that Axle Contemporary participating artist/photographer and enthusiast Baron Wolman has died. We loved his forthright, unabashed, enthusiastic embrace of life and are glad we had the opportunity to work with him. This photo is his self-portrait from our show Autophotography in 2013. We had to add the red stripe to censor the nudity so Facebook wouldn't shut us down. Apologies to you and to Baron for that. You can see the photo, uncensored here: https://www.axleart.com/autophoto?lightbox=image_u73
