Opening Reception for Martin Stupich, Remnants of the First World
Friday, February 8, 2013, 5:00-7:00 pm
Artist Talk on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 5:30 pm
Free and open to the public.

“We build and shape our landscapes and terrains—gardens, bridges, truck stops, quarries, canals and dams—to suit both our physical and emotional desires. Yet this is not without consequences. This exhibition presents a selection of potent images from a larger body of work that Martin Stupich has explored and recorded since the 1970s. These images of some of our most ambitious, often permanent structures are breathtaking to behold yet also pose questions about what it is we are leaving behind as the “remnants” of our culture and time. As the photographer has remarked “These remnants of the first world are the evidence, the trail of clues we leave as we plow ahead….” Stupich clearly works within a historical sphere which harks back to the nineteenth-century and includes some of the great camera artists of that era such as Timothy O’Sullivan, Carleton Watkins and Darius Kinsey.”

The exhibition is located in the Van Daren Coke Gallery and will be on display February 19 – May 25, 2013.
Martin Stupich will give an artist talk at the museum on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 5:30 pm.

March 6th, Albuquerque: Artist Talk by Joel Peter-Witkin

University of New Mexico Art Museum
Artist Talk by Joel Peter-Witkin, Matter Into Spirit

Tuesday, March 6, 2012 at 5:30 pm
Free and open to the public (suggested donation of $5).

Joel Peter-Witkin (American, b. 1939) remains one of the most innovative and controversial living photographers who is best known for his provocative tableaux that are highly symbolic amalgamations and contemporary versions of the medieval tradition of the momento mori; that is, images that serve to remind the viewer of her/his own mortality. Witkin’s oeuvre is distinguished, perhaps like no other in the international pantheon of vanguard photography, through his constructed versions of heaven and hell, suffering and deliverance, morbidity and beauty laced with Christian iconography and pagan myth. The aura of the photographs are enhanced by deliberate manipulation of the surface to make them appear aged, an act that comments on the nature of the photographic image by calling into question its permanency.”

The Art Museum is located in the Center for the Arts, UNM Main Campus [map].
