Santa Fe Art Trifecta

By ML Staff

Don’t miss this diverse, compelling art event in Santa Fe—the Santa Fe Art Trifecta. Taking place July 9-19, the Trifecta is an extraordinary alliance between three arts organizations: ART Santa Fe international contemporary art fair, the International Folk Art Market | Santa Fe, and SITE Santa Fe contemporary art center.

ART Santa Fe, July 9-12, offers an overview of contemporary and modern art from galleries in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. Special installations include the Puzzle Project, with individually made puzzle piece shaped canvases from artists around the world. A documentary feature film, Alumbrones, looks at the work and lives of twelve contemporary Cuban artists. Topping off the weekend is a keynote speech by Don Bacigalupi, founding president of the new Lucas Museum of Narrative Art in Chicago.

The International Folk Art Market | Santa Fe is a colorful outdoor gathering which brings over 150 master folk artists from every corner of the world to show and sell their handmade art. The 12th annual market takes place July 10-12. Enjoy meeting the artists, dining at the International Food Bazaar, international musical performances, and shopping with a cause. Tickets are limited and are on sale now.

SITE Santa Fe celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2015 with 20 Years/20 Shows, a yearlong series of exhibitions. The summer portion of the series will feature a collaborative project by Janine Antoni with choreographer Stephen Petronio; an installation by Amy Cutler with musician Emily Wells; new work by Harmony Hammond in conversation with works by sculptor Francis Cape, and an installation by Dario Robleto in collaboration with sound historian Patrick Feaster and Lance Ledbetter of Dust-to-Digital Records. Also opening on July 18 is Unsuspected Possibilities: Leonardo Drew, Sarah Oppenheimer, and Marie Watt. These three artists will create new, large-scale installations that are not only specific to SITE’s space but also responsive to each other.
