El Zaguán, 545 Canyon Road, 505-983-2567 The His­toric Santa Fe Foun­da­tion presents pho­tog­ra­pher Frank Blazquez’s Bar­rios de Nuevo Mex­ico: South­west Sto­ries of Vin­di­ca­tion, an ex­hibit of por­traits from New Mex­ico’s marginal­ized com­mu­ni­ties. Blazquez is an Al­bu­querque­based artist, writer, and film­maker. He started the Bar­rios de Nuevo Mex­ico project in 2016 and has since gained in­ter­na­tional recog­ni­tion for the se­ries with re­cent ar­ti­cles in The Guardian and VICE Méx­ico. “They are an at­tempt to cap­ture an au­then­tic New Mex­i­can love story,” Blazquez told The Guardian in Novem­ber. “The self-pun­ish­ment, anx­i­ety, and beauty come from a place that is all too fa­mil­iar for those liv­ing in this Land of En­chant­ment.” The open­ing re­cep­tion is at 5 p.m. on Fri­day, Jan. 11.
