The third event in the series: “Ethnography and Creative Process in the Arts” is with Melanie Curran, Independent Musician & Ethnographer, “Finding Songs on The Air: Lessons from Brittany, France”
The format will be largely workshop-based and hands-on, with breakout rooms planned for the sharing of what attendees work-on during their workshop experience. The series is open to all members of the UNM community and community members, faculty, and students across the country; pre-registration for each talk is required, and all webinars will take place on Zoom.
“Finding Songs on The Air: Lessons From Brittany, France”
In this talk, I share how learning a Breton song opened me to the ways traditional music can transmit during the digital age. Participants will examine the songs they carry. We’ll be thinking about how regional culture transforms through digital interfaces.
Melanie Beth Curran is a musician and writer living in New York. She was a recent Fulbright fellow to France where she wrote an ethnography about the oral transmission of traditional Breton music during the digital age. She is working on a book about the passage of music, entitled Between People. Melanie’s songwriting blends American old-time, honky-tonk, and rock n’ roll, and is rooted in her experiences growing up on the Salish Sea in Washington State. Her second album, San Benedito Beach, will be released in 2021. Melanie holds an MFA in Creative Writing from The New School.
This talk is open to students, faculty, and staff, and is available for concert music credit. Any questions should be directed to Sasha Arteaga at email@example.com. Cohosted by the UNM Musicology Program and Anthropology Department

Just over thirty years ago, a film unit was established at UNM. Headed by Dr. Ira Jaffe, who began teaching movie classes at the university in 1972, it was known as the Media Arts program. Since then, film instruction at UNM has gone from strength to strength, and now, under the banner of Film and Digital Arts, we are nurturing the newest generation of New Mexico film talent.
To celebrate our thirty (plus!) years at UNM, we’ve invited a distinguished group of alumni and film luminaries to talk to our students and the community about how they found success doing what they love. If you want to work in the digital media fields, this series will be a fabulous source of advice and useable strategies. All events will be free and open to the public.

Join us for a conversation with Tamarind Institute artist-in-residence Noel Anderson and Associate Professor of Religious Studies and African American Studies at the University of Virginia Ashon Crawley.
Artist Noel W. Anderson and artist, writer, and educator Ashon T. Crawley discuss art-making, modes of representation, and “otherwise possibilities,” drawing special attention to Anderson’s newly released Tamarind prints Ebony Files, the Albuquerque Suite.
Noel W. Anderson received an MFA from Indiana University in Printmaking and an MFA from Yale University in Sculpture, and he is Area Head of Printmaking in NYU’s Steinhardt Department of Art and Art Professions. Anderson utilizes print-media and arts-based-research to explore philosophical inquiry methodologies. He primarily focuses on the mediation of socially constructed images on identity formation as it relates to black masculinity and celebrity. In 2018, Noel was awarded the NYFA artist fellowship grant and the prestigious Jerome Prize. His solo exhibition Blak Origin Moment debuted at the Contemporary Arts Center (Cincinnati) in February 2017 and traveled to the Hunter Museum of American Art in October 2019. His first monograph, Blak Origin Moment, was also recently published.
Ashon T. Crawley is an artist, writer and teacher based in Charlottesville, Virginia. His artwork is at the intersection of performance, painting, and sound making. He is associate professor of Religious Studies and African-American and African Studies at the University of Virginia, and the author of The Lonely Letters and Blackpentecostal Breath: The Aesthetics of Possibility. He is currently at work on a book about the Hammond B3 organ, the Black church, and sexuality.

In this talk, Ray Hernández-Durán, Ph.D., Professor of Art History and Museum Studies, Department of Art: Studio History Education, will focus on a transitional period in Mexican art history, 1750-1850, and explore the role of the Academy of San Carlos in shaping Mexican art production. By looking at the academy in Mexico City during this period, we can trace how the image of the Indian was transformed and the Black subject gradually erased as the colonial period came to an end and independent Mexico emerged.
