Pasatiempo - - CONTENTS -

The third an­nual In­dige­nous Fine Art Mar­ket, bet­ter known as IFAM, kicks off on Thurs­day, Aug. 18, with Glow v 2.0, the open­ing-night party, from 8 p.m. to mid­night at the Santa Fe Farm­ers Mar­ket Pavilion (1607 Paseo de Per­alta). IFAM spokesman Dou­glas Miles, the artist who runs Apache Skate­boards, said that the youth-ori­ented mar­ket — which is seen by many as the re­bel­lious younger cousin to SWAIA’s In­dian Mar­ket — “isn’t about mak­ing a bunch of money. It’s about the art, the mu­sic, and the vol­un­teers. Na­tive art is chang­ing so fast that ex­perts don’t even know how to talk about it. Na­tive art is a com­plex form of hu­man ex­pres­sion, and the old par­a­digm of how it’s been looked at needs to be dis­carded.”

One of the high­lights of IFAM 2016 is the live creation of a mu­ral on three sides of Ware­house 21 (1614 Paseo de Per­alta) by the Ari­zon­abased Neo­glyphix crew, Na­tive street artists who cre­ate mu­rals in cel­e­bra­tion of their art and cul­ture. The ju­ried IFAM art show in the Santa Fe Rai­l­yard (Thurs­day and Fri­day, Aug. 18 and 19, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturday, Aug. 20, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) fea­tures more than 300 artists, in­clud­ing Robert Teno­rio, Re­becca Be­gay, Robert Dale Tsosie, and Griselda Saufkie. At the ac­com­pa­ny­ing fair and en­ter­tain­ment stage, also in the Rai­l­yard, mu­si­cal acts and other en­ter­tain­ment go on un­til 9 p.m. Thurs­day and Fri­day and un­til 4 p.m. on Saturday. Bands in­clude The Mir­a­cle Dolls, S.O.L., The Dis­co­tays, and the all-fe­male Home­girls Records DJ Col­lec­tive. There are also skate­board­ing demon­stra­tions, in­stal­la­tions and per­for­mance art, and lit­er­ary booths.
