Roswell Museum and Art Center
100 W 11th St, Roswell, New Mexico, 88201
Museum hours: 9am – 5pm Tuesday – Saturday / 1 – 5pm Sunday / closed Mondays
The works featured in this year’s selection relate to the RMAC collection, as well as the greater Roswell community. From interactive sculptural installations to phone apps, the pieces on view address topics ranging from Native American spirituality to UFOs, reflecting the complex identity of both Roswell and its Museum.
Spring River Gallery / Exhibition June 10 – August 14
Spring River Gallery features three installations considering different facets of Roswell’s identities. David Fodel’s Confabulator considers the ambiguities of cultural memory with his altered documentary clips addressing the 1947 UFO incident. Joe Hedges brings to light the often fractured, individualized perception of place with his puzzle-like presentation of the Roswell Museum, as part of the New Media New Mexico Art Trail. Sherman Finch playfully addresses the universal physics of place with his interactive sculpture Symphonic Infinitum.
Horgan and Graphics Galleries / Exhibition May 27 – July 24
Horgan and Graphics Galleries is the site of The Wise One, a meditative video by Taos artist Jean Stevens. This work explores the subtleties of Native American spirituality, paralleling the Spirit section of the RMAC’s West of Beyond installation.
Shannon Novak’s synesthetic Roswell Phrase, available for download as a free smart phone app, superimposes the artist’s visual and musical responses over objects located within the Museum, including works of art as well as more mundane signs and doors.
