Artists Jason Garcia/Okuu Pín (Santa Clara Pueblo Tewa) and Vicente Telles (Atrisco) met while both participating in Axle’s 2015 “Slices of Wonder” exhibition. Since that time, the two have become fast friends, collaborators and co-conspirators. For the past three+ years, they have been working together both on works that parallel each other and works that they are creating collaboratively. These works invoke the traditional artworks of their cultures (Pueblo and Nuevo Mexicano), and explore shared meanings and overlapping traditions and values. Their collaborative exhibition in the Axle Contemporary Mobile Artspace will open during the Spanish Market weekend and run through the Indian Market weekend.
Listen to the artists discuss their work, their collaborations, and their inspirations in conversation with Matthew Chase-Daniel on KTRC's Coffee + Culture. Podcast here.
