The Photography Department at Santa Fe University of Art and Design (SFUAD) announces a joint exhibit with the City of Santa Fe Arts Commission Community Gallery entitled In/Visible Borders: New Mexico Photographers. The exhibit, curated by SFUAD Photography Department chair Mary Anne Redding, will open to the public on Monday, September 9, from 4:30-6:30 p.m. during an opening reception at SFUAD’s Atrium Gallery in the Marion Center for Photographic Arts. A complementary exhibit will open to the public at the Santa Fe Community Gallery beginning November 22.

The joint exhibition examines the contemporary New Mexico landscape in terms of the cultural, political, and economic realities of life in the 21st century along the borderlands between the United States and Mexico. It also investigates the organic borderlands between cultures and economic status that define the state of New Mexico and the greater Southwest, and explores the relationship of these invisible and visible boundaries.

Nineteen photographers have been invited to exhibit images that relate to this topic. Each photographer will exhibit two images in SFUAD’s Marion Center and two in the Santa Fe Community Gallery. Exhibiting New Mexico photographers include:
