Happy birth­day to the New Mex­ico Mu­seum of Art. The mu­seum’s cen­ten­nial this year was the im­pe­tus for re­viv­ing its Al­coves ex­hi­bi­tion se­ries, an on-again, off-again group of shows in­spired by the mu­seum’s early years, when lo­cal artists could sign up for space to show their work. Each Al­coves show in­cludes solo in­stal­la­tions by five re­gional con­tem­po­rary artists whose work is on view for seven weeks. Al­coves 16/17 #7, the last in the cur­rent cy­cle of shows, is on view through March 26 and fea­tures works by the late Ciel Bergman (1938-2017), Jes­sika Edgar, Ilona Pach­ler, Clay­ton Porter, and Edie Tsong. On the cover is Bergman’s 2015 oil on can­vas, Dump­ing An­i­mal Blood into the Sea; im­age cour­tesy the Koller Fam­ily and brave ART con­sult­ing.
