FORM & CONCEPT ARTISTS DEBUT GROUP SHOW OF NEW, BOUNDARY-SHATTERING ARTWORK
Santa Fe, NM—“From the beginning, we were interested in reimagining what an art gallery could be,” says Frank Rose, Director of form & concept gallery. “The natural starting point was asking, ‘What’s been exhibited, and what or who has been excluded?’” The gallery, located in Santa Fe’s Railyard Arts District, celebrated its second anniversary in May—but its most definitive curatorial statement emerges each summer. The latest entry in form & concept’s Annual Exhibition series launches in late July, and includes new artwork from all ten of the gallery’s represented artists.
Each show brings together local and far-flung creative voices in a conversation about art, craft and design. “By looking at the cultural lines we’ve drawn between these broad categories, we start to better understand ways that people have been divided,” says Rose. “What we call art, craft or design has a lot to do with gender, race and class.” form & concept Annual Exhibition 2018 opens on Friday, July 27 from 5 to 7 pm, and a number of the featured artists will conduct a gallery talk on Saturday, August 25 from 2 to 3 pm.
