Mar­ion Cen­ter for Pho­to­graphic Arts, Santa Fe Univer­sity of Art and De­sign, 1600 St. Michael’s Drive, 505-473-6341 The ex­hi­bi­tion Drift­ing Away/Río Abajo by Colom­bian vis­ual artist Erika Di­ettes con­tin­ues through Jan. 21. Di­ettes’ pho­to­graphs honor the vic­tims of the decades-long armed con­flict be­tween the Colom­bian govern­ment, guer­ril­las, and drug car­tels. In this se­ries, Di­ettes, an artist and an­thro­pol­o­gist who fo­cuses on the ef­fects of po­lit­i­cal vi­o­lence and in­jus­tices around the world, takes per­sonal ar­ti­facts be­long­ing to the dis­ap­peared and pho­to­graphs them in wa­ter, draw­ing from the fact that Colom­bian rivers have been the repos­i­to­ries for thou­sands of uniden­ti­fied vic­tims of vi­o­lence.
