ALL REZ: Kéyah, Hooghan, K’é, Iiná / Land, Home, Kinship, Life is a travelling, site-specific, experimental photography exhibition and collaborative museological project.

In 2020, Rapheal Begay exhibited A Vernacular Response, a series of photographs taken on the Navajo Nation at UNM's Maxwell Museum of Anthropology. Now, throughout the month of June, Begay will bring those photos back to where they were made in Diné Bikéyah, and engage in conversations with community members, documenting their responses to the photos and the ideas and cultural content held therein. The photo exhibition will be presented in, on, and outside of Axle Contemporary's mobile artspace, a retrofitted 1970 aluminum-bodied delivery truck. The interior of the truck will be transformed into a welcoming space for reflection and conversation with the artist about his photographs. As an exercise in creative place-making with the goal of fostering active storytelling, ALL REZ centers the voices and experiences of Diné community members, offering a reciprocal process of exhibition-making. Axle and Begay plan to visit Crownpoint, Gallup, and Shiprock, New Mexico; Chinle and Window Rock, Arizona; and Monument Valley, Utah.


During the travels, photographs, videos, and stories will be transmitted back to the Maxwell Museum in Albuquerque and presented in an evolving exhibition there, along with a selection of Begay's original photographs.


Rapheal Begay is a visual storyteller based in the Navajo Nation. Informed by cultural teachings and land-based knowledge, he activates landscape photography and oral storytelling traditions to document and celebrate the Diné way of life.

Housed in a custom retrofitted 1970 aluminum delivery truck, Axle Contemporary is an art gallery on wheels that activates unusual venues, such as schools, restaurants, grocery stores, and city streets, thus, expanding artists' reach to diverse communities.

Lillia McEnaney is a museum anthropologist, independent curator, and freelance arts writer based in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Through cutting edge anthropological research; permanent, temporary, and online exhibitions; community partnerships; and educational programs, the Maxwell Museum of Anthropology strives to meet its mission of working toward greater understandings of the fullness of human experiences in the Southwest and the world. 


ALL REZ is a project of Axle Contemporary and The Maxwell Museum of Anthropology at the University of New Mexico.
