Thursday, October 24, 2013, 6:00-8:00 pm
Free and open to the public.

“Photographers Martin Stupich and Jamey Stillings speak about industrial landscapes in this special lecture held in conjunction with the Marion Center’s In/Visible Borders: New Mexico Photographers exhibition. Both speakers are exhibiting in the show.

In/Visible Borders examines the contemporary Southwestern landscape in terms of the cultural, political, and economic realities of life in the 21st century along the borderlands between the United States and Mexico. The exhibition also investigates the organic borderlands between cultures and economic status that define the state of New Mexico and the greater Southwest.

The exhibition will be on view until Friday, Dec. 13. The complementary exhibition at the Community Gallery will open on Nov. 22 and run through Feb. 21, 2014.”

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.
