The Photography Department at Santa Fe University of Art and Design (SFUAD) has announced a joint exhibition with the City of Santa Fe Arts Commission’s Community Gallery called In/Visible Borders: New Mexico Photographers. The exhibition, curated by SFUAD Photography Department chair Mary Anne Redding, will open to the public on Monday, Sept. 9, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. with a reception at SFUAD’s Atrium Gallery in the Marion Center for Photographic Arts. A complementary exhibition will open at the Community Gallery on Marcy Street Nov. 22.

This joint exhibition examines 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 it explores the relationship of these invisible and visible boundaries.

Nineteen New Mexico photographers were invited to participate. Each photographer will show two images in SFUAD’s Marion Center and two in the Community Gallery. Exhibiting photographers include:

Tony Bonanno (Santa Fe)
Michael Borowski (Albuquerque)
