Intersections is a group exhibition taking place at intersections.vitalspaces.org, where it highlights the numerous points of connection between the 97 contemporary works of art and 30 artists featured, all of whom currently live or work in Santa Fe, New Mexico. There are countless ways in which visitors can experience the exhibition. Through an interactive sorting tool on Intersections’s website, viewers can form hundreds of miniature group exhibitions around shared themes, mediums, and other affiliations. Commissioned videos that bring together dance, poetry, visual art, and music are also available online; check back over the course of the summer for new video releases.
Posters, banners, and signs in public parks and local businesses around Santa Fe advertise the website while also visually saturating the city with images from the exhibition, bringing the virtual show out into physical locations. These interventions into public space will be up through Sunday, August 15, and the website will remain live in perpetuity.
Funded by the City of Santa Fe Arts & Culture Department Digital Collaborative Impact Grant, Intersections directs marketing funds to local contemporary artists, many of whom have had their livelihoods impacted by the pandemic. Please consider tipping an artist if you have been inspired by their artwork at secure.givelively.org.
