M12: Protest 2015, photograph
Center for Contemporary Arts, 1050 Old Pecos Trail, 505-982-1338 Two exhibitions open at the Center for Contemporary Arts on Friday, April 29. The Breaking Ring is a sculptural installation by Colorado-based collective M12 and is in the Muñoz Waxman Gallery. The show includes a 24-foot-diameter horse-breaking ring and images from the book An Equine Anthology, created during M12’s 2015 residency at the Santa Fe Art Institute; the book brings attention to the plight of America’s wild horses. A Very Long Line, in CCA’s Spector Ripps Project Space, is a four-channel video installation by the Santa Fe-based collective Postcommodity and is part of a continuing exploration of regional immigration. The reception for the shows is at 6 p.m. Members of M12 give a free gallery talk on Saturday, April 30, at 11 a.m. followed by a 12:30 p.m. music performance by Postcommodity.
