Art or technology, which came first?  To make art, a tool was needed, but to make the tool, art was needed. We can’t have one without the other.  TOOLS is an exhibition dedicated to tools that make art, and artists that makes tools.  The show includes tools that were fabricated by artists to create their work, and artworks that are imaginary, absurd, and surreal tools.


Potato                 part of a new arts festival in Taos,  THE PASEO

Friday September 26th, 2014  4-10 pm


Axle Contemporary joined twenty contemporary artists for The Paseo, a unique one-night experience on the streets of Taos. The Paseo is a festival dedicated to bringing the art of installation, performance and projection to the streets of Taos, New Mexico.


We provided potatoes, carving tools, some delicious colorful spices, and paper.  We hung the prints on the exterior of our mobile gallery, gave a print to take away, and then cut up the potato blocks and added them to our pot of soup.  Make a block print and share in the soup.

500 prints made, 200 bowls of soup served, over 1,000 visitors.


August 19 - September 14, 2014

This series explored art and action related to the ecology of economies, art related to money, innovative and creative approaches to economics, and interrelations between the fields of economics and ecology. The series included an exhibition of visual art, roundtable discussions, performances, and installations. We aim to encourage a conversation around the intersections of economics, ecology and art, including critical commentary and new approaches and alternatives to the status quo

The Renga Project       One year: 100 artists and poets

The Renga Project began on the summer solstice, 2013. It's a new take on an ancient traditional  collaborative form of Japanese poetry. 52 weekly stanzas were written by a diverse group of New Mexico poets. We also invited 52 New Mexico artists to create a linked drawing with each artist responding to a writer's stanza. The poem has been displayed on a large sign in the Santa Fe Railyard all year, with new stanzas added weekly.
