writer + editor
Maggie Grimason is a writer and editor living in New Mexico.
Many Worlds Are Born, the current exhibition on view at 516 Arts in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is the first of two exhibitions slotted this year to examine disparate histories of the state (the second, Technologies of the Spirit, opens on June 11). Both grew out of Art Meets History, a national initiative led by Ric Kasini Kadour (who co-curated this exhibition alongside Alicia Inez Guzmán, PhD) that “looks at how the divergent histories of race, conflict, and colonialism in New Mexico inform how we imagine our futures.”
Once Upon a Time in Albuquerque
Karsten Creightney is a world-builder. His latest solo exhibition Pieces at Richard Levy Gallery, one of downtown Albuquerque’s anchors, is transportive. As the gallery doors swung shut, I found myself zipped into the margins of new realities created in just nine works on paper, canvas, and linen.
