Curated by Strangers Collective, NO LAND will feature solo and small group exhibitions by artists, writers and performers, and also host collaborative events with other local creatives. Dedicated to those ready to take the next step in their careers, NO LAND gives artists the opportunity to develop and show full-fledged bodies of work. NO LAND will also house a permanent zine library and merchandise store of affordably priced items.
Strangers Collective started in fall 2014 as a series of secret shows for emerging artists in private residences. What began as a salon-style gathering of friends grew into a full-fledged collective with over 30 local creatives. Now we’ve expanded into public spaces to showcase talented artists and writers who deserve exposure but have not found representation. Our mission is to help our members take their first steps into the fine art world, support the larger emerging arts community, and foster critical arts dialogue in Santa Fe.
