“DRAWING & DRIVING” - Axle Contemporary Art, June 26 - August 18, 2019
More info: AXLE CONTEMPORARY GALLERY
In February, 2019, as part of the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts’ Art for New Understanding: Native Perspectives, 1950’s to Now exhibition, artist Steven Yazzie led a group of artists in a MoCNA/Axle Contemporary art-making workshop, using his custom-built Drawing and Driving recumbent tricycle/studio-vehicle. Participants included IAIA art students and local artists invited by Santa Fe’s Axle Contemporary.
The goal was to to engage and connect both students and the Santa Fe art community with the exhibition and Yazzie's art practice. Under Yazzie’s direction, each artist draws or paints while driving the vehicle, adding a performative and community-based element to Yazzie’s project. After the artworks were completed by the group, The vehicle was installed in the exhibition during its run at MoCNA.
Axle Contemporary and Yazzie have now taken the project a step further by inviting more local artists to draw and drive for the project this week. The collection of resulting small drawings and paintings will be the exhibited in the Axle Contemporary mobile exhibition space from July 26 through Aug 18, 2019. After the opening in the Santa Fe Railyard, the mobile gallery will locate around Santa Fe during the run of the exhibition. Axle Contemporary will be located at the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts' Allan Houser Art Park during Indian Market week, from August 14 – 18.
