Susan Beiner returns to form & concept for a solo exhibition featuring a large-scale, modular installation. The wall sculptures will feature Beiner’s characteristic floral forms, a porcelain garden of tactile blooms with allusions to architectural structures. Though it reads as one unit, each piece will be a unique work, showcasing Beiner’s vocabulary of encrusted forms.   “The installation will be encrusted and glazed in different ways,” Beiner explains. “There’s a pattern, but the surface will bring variation to a large…

The group exhibition Beyond Punch Cards was inspired by a woman who changed the world. Mathematician Ada Lovelace studied the complex engineering behind the Jacquard loom to invent the first computational algorithm in 1840.“The analytical engine will weave algebraic patterns like Jacquard looms weave flowers and leaves,” Lovelace said. Since that pivotal moment, artists, designers and technologists from across the globe have explored the links between weaving and coding. In Beyond Punch Cards, an official satellite show of the CURRENTS…

Beyond Punch Cards | CURRENTS Reception

June 7 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
form & concept,
435 South Guadalupe St
Santa Fe, NM 87501 United States

"We’re asking big questions about how weaving and coding can work together to change our perceptions of the world," says co-curator Renata de Carvalho Gaui. "Can these practices converge to illustrate different identities, keep cultures and history alive, or resist obsolescence?”   Renata de Carvalho Gaui and Francesca Rodriguez Sawaya united an international group of artists who straddle the line between weaving and coding. The participating artists will be decidedly transdisciplinary. Glowing textiles, robotic looms, and “woven” projections are among…

Each show unites local and far-flung creative voices in a conversation about art, craft and design. form & concept seeks to examine the conceptual lines drawn between such broad categories, and how these distinctions reflect cultural attitudes toward gender, race, and class.     The gallery, located in Santa Fe’s Railyard district,…

Every year since 2014, Marissa Saneholtz and Sara Brown have invited a new group of jewelers and metalsmiths to work side-by-side in a communal studio for a week. Over six years, the forum expanded in numbers and geographic area to encompass over 70 artists in several states.   Call it a mobile artist…

I like challenging perceptions of an object, or how we create hierarchies of format,” says metalsmith Bryan Petersen. Art is constantly in flux—different mediums fall in and out of favor, dropping and adding qualifiers like “wearable” or “sculptural.” While earrings, necklaces, and brooches have ascended to artwork status, the belt buckle has been largely overlooked.   In response, Petersen founded the World Champion Belt Buckle Competition. Since its founding in 2012, the competition has sought to upend outdated stereotypes. Utilizing…
