Why buy original art from Zatista? We'll tell you here
Art & Enchiladas

If you happen to be headed to Santa Fe in the next few months, you are one lucky chili pepper. The unique combination of food, landscape, and the smell of piñon in the air makes New Mexico one of my very favorite places.

Raymond Pettibon "Sunday Night and Saturday Morning" 2005

Sure, there’s all the usual good stuff to see in Santa Fe: Museum of International Folk Art, Canyon Road, Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, etc. But, this season be sure not to miss SITE Santa Fe’s Eighth International Biennial Exhibition, The Dissolve.

Dziga Vertov "Soviet Toys" 1924

According to The Dissolve‘s website, “A paradigm shift in contemporary art is rare and hard to recognize at its inception, but that is what curators Sarah Lewis and Daniel Belasco have done in The Dissolve.”

Ezra Johnson "What Visions Burn" 2006

“The curators will present a new sensibility in the art of our time, a mingling of up-to-the-minute technology and traditional visual arts (painting, drawing, and sculpture) with dance, music, and film. The fundamental form of this new work is animation, uniting the technological (the camera) with the hand-made (drawing).”

Cindy Sherman "Doll Clothes" 1975

“The Dissolve will trace the development and reinterpretation of moving image techniques in wonderfully surprising juxtapositions.”

Martha Colburn "Myth Labs" 2008

George Griffin "Viewmaster, a digital mutoscope ' 1976

Be sure to check this exhibit out and report back to us how you liked it here on WallSpin. And while you’re in town, swing by the Tune-Up Cafe too, I hear the food is fantastic!

On view through January 2nd, 2011. SITE Santa Fe 1606 Paseo de Peralta Santa Fe, New Mexico 87501
