Highlands students in collaboration with Dept. of Cultural Affairs

The New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs teamed up with students from New Mexico Highlands University, The College of Santa Fe and Institute of American Indian Arts to document visual artists creating work for the 7th International Biennial Exhibition at SITE Santa Fe, Lucky Number Seven, curated by Lance Fung. Twenty-five artists from 17 countries have arrived in Santa Fe three weeks before the opening of the exhibition to produce their works on site. SITE Santa Fe hosts the only international biennial in the United States.

The Web site is www.santafelucky7.com. It will deliver up-to-date information about artworks in progress, artists’ experiences and public feedback. New videos will be added daily.

“I’ve never before worked with such a professional team of documentary artists,” said curator Lance Fung. “Had they not approached me and proposed this exciting project, the public would be denied the rich legacy of the behind-the-scenes creative work artists do before the exhibition.”

The documentary Website team includes: Lauren Addario, Kenny Bachicha, Veronica Black, Paul Conley, Eliot Fisher, Jeana Francis, Jason Jaacks, Carlo Martinez, Megan McHugh, Kara Pajewski, under the direction of Mimi Roberts from the Department of Cultural Affairs. Faculty advisors are Professors Robert Drummond and Miriam Langer from the NMHU Media Arts Program, Tony O’Brien from the CSF Documentary Studies Program, and Carlos Peinado from IAIA New Media Arts Program.

This project is supported by The New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs with additional support from the Mandelman-Ribak Foundation.
