Because It’s Time: Unraveling Race and Place in NMUNM Alums Featured in NMHCC Exhibition
Because It’s Time: Unraveling Race and Place in NM examines race and identity in New Mexico and is a space for artistic expression that grapples with the complexities of who we are, how we are understood, and how that impacts the way we live (or don’t) in a variety of places.
May 4, 2018 – February 28, 2019 • Art Museum hours and prices
The exhibition features approximately 26 newly created artworks by artists with different experiences in New Mexico alongside works from the National Hispanic Cultural Center Art Museum’s permanent collection. All of the artworks delve into race and place through an intersectional lens alongside gender, sexuality, class, nationality, citizenship status, etc. from local, national, and international perspectives.
This museum exhibition included much contemplation by the Visual Arts program staff and interns about what it might look like to create an exhibit that relinquished a bit of institutional control and placed it in the hands of the artists. Many of the works were not seen in their completed form until just weeks before the opening. The process continues to be a learning experience and the hope is to maintain an environment of openness and education, for the staff and our visitors, even after the exhibition closes.
Invited artists include: Adelina Cruz (BFA), Apolo Gomez (BFA), Aziza Murray (MFA), Earl McBride (MFA), Delilah Montoya, (MA), Eric-Paul Riege (BFA), Fatemeh Baigmoradi (MFA), Jami Porter Lara (BFA), Jessica Chao (BFA), Joanna Keane Lopez (BFA), Monica Kennedy (MFA candidate); The show also features our faculty member, Baochi Zhang, Associate Professor in Painting and Drawing.

Garcia, Ester Hernández, Jason Garcia, Nicolás de Jesús, Noni Olabisi, Pamela Enriquez-Courts, Rosana Paulino, Rupert Garcia, Scherezade Garcia, Vincent Valdez, Yreina D. Cervantez.
