Eye on the Amer­i­cas

Pasatiempo - - NEWS -

Artist Paulo Nazareth likes jour­ney­ing and talk­ing to peo­ple along the way. To travel to Santa Fe, he hitch­hiked from Panama City. He was held at the United States border, which he ex­plained with the com­ment, “I don’t have a tourist face.” To en­able him to en­ter the U.S., SITE Santa Fe sent a let­ter say­ing that Nazareth is a ju­ried artist in its cur­rent ex­hi­bi­tion, much wider than a line. This is the sec­ond it­er­a­tion of SITE’s three-part bi­en­nial se­ries fo­cus­ing on con­tem­po­rary art from the Amer­i­cas. In prepa­ra­tion for his in­stal­la­tion for the show, Nazareth is trav­el­ing around New Mex­ico and talk­ing to peo­ple whose lives have been af­fected by nu­clear-weapons test­ing and nu­clear waste. The ex­hi­bi­tion opens on Satur­day, July 16. On the cover is Nazareth’s 2012 un­ti­tled photo from his Noti­cias de Amer­ica (News from the Amer­i­cas) se­ries.
