RSVP on Facebook.

form & concept presents Inner Orbit, an exhibition of contemporary artists from across the United States with deeply personal or cultural visions of outer space. The show appears in conjunction with Santa Fe Futurition, the Currents New Media Festival, and the Santa Fe Institute’s Interplanetary Festival. Inner Orbit opens on Friday, May 25, 5-7 pm, and a number of the participating artists will appear at a gallery talk on Saturday, June 9, 2-3 pm.

From a human perspective, the night sky is a densely layered cultural landscape. Long before they were subjects of scientific study, stars were laden with countless overlapping mythologies. Fortune tellers, sailors, writers, architects and artists have all projected profound meaning into the cosmos—tying earthly events to the movements of heavenly bodies. Inner Orbit spotlights contemporary artists who meld fine art and craft mediums with technology for a fresh look at the firmament.


Katie Dorame, Nina Elder, Stephan Hillerbrand, Case Jernigan, Drew Lenihan, Mary Magsamen, Matthew Mullins, Eric William Carroll, Andrew Yang, Marcus Zúñiga
