PostCommodity vs. Santa Fe 400th

Arts collective takes on Santa Fe's anniversary.

The shifting status of Santa Fe's land and inhabitants is not a history paved with golden streets and daffodils. This week, artist collective PostCommodity opens a show in response to the 400th anniversary of Santa Fe.

Check out SFR's audio-visual slide slide for a peek behind the scenes.


With the help of the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts, four Native American artists take us through the past, present and future of this landscape, and mark the struggle for continuity and self-determination of its indigenous people.

 
Made up of Kade Twist, Nathan Young, Raven Chacon, and Steven Yazzie, PostCommodity presents  It Wasn't the Dream of Golden Cities.

The group's work takes the form of a three-part installation.

Outside, “P’oe iwe naví unp'oe dinmuu” (My Blood Is in the Water) displays a taxidermied mule deer, 15 feet in the air.

Inside, a multimedia piece places viewers inside a Pueblo Revolt-era ambush and an audio-video piece explores the shifting status of the land around Santa Fe.
