The PASEO, a free nighttime art festival, emerged in 2014 as a platform to present installation, performance and projection art on the streets of the Taos Historic District. Taos, New Mexico has a long-standing reputation as an art destination, and is home to arguably one of the oldest art colonies in the USA, founded in 1898. The town itself was established in 1615 and is adjacent to the two-thousand-year-old Taos Pueblo, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Building on this long cultural history, the PASEO brings context-responsive art — no stages, no screens —from around the world to the streets of Taos. Large-scale sculptures, fire pieces, and cutting-edge art technologies overlay historic buildings and streets, offering a whole new way of experiencing the town.
At PASEO 2019, immersive and participatory art installations that harness art, technology and culture will explore the idea of ‘connections’ — celebrating, contemplating, and questioning our interactions with each other, nature, and the world.
The PASEO 2019 Artist in Residence, La Pocha Nostra, will present The Enchilada Western (A Living Museum of Fetishized Identities), an interactive performance opera conceptualized & written by Guillermo Gómez-Peña & La Pocha Nostra. They will premiere new works at the PASEO during a large-scale performance that mimics and parodies living history environments and cultural heritage parks gone wrong.
The PASEO 2019 will be held September 13 and 14, sunset – 11pm.
