Wendy Red Star: The Maniacs (We’re Not The Best, But We’re Better Than The Rest)
University Art Gallery
On view from January 26 through March 16, 2018, this site-specific exhibition will visually materialize and mesh memories of the past and present in Red Star’s investigation of her Apsáalooke (Crow) Indian father’s life in rock music, a site of familial importance and popular culture that has informed the artist’s practice and individual and collective identities as an Apsáalooke (Crow)-Irish American woman. Through photography, sound, sculpture, interviews, and a visual timeline, Red Star, as artist turned archivist, will create a multisensory, immersive installation for viewers to experience.

Exhibit: January 26 – March 16, 2018

Opening Reception:  Friday, January 26, 2018, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 10 AM – 4 PM

University Art Gallery
Superbloom is a solo exhibition by NYC-based artist Eric LoPresti at the New Mexico State University Art Gallery opening in September of 2018. Sited a mere 97 miles from Trinity, location of the first atomic bomb, the exhibition outlines an expansive framework within which viewers can meditate on two increasingly relevant antipodes of human experience: the quest for aesthetic expression, and the threat of global apocalypse.
Exhibit: September 27 – January 5, 2018

Opening Reception:  Thursday, September 27, 2018, 5:30p.m.

Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Saturday, 10 AM – 4 PM
