Santa Fe Indian Market Centennial Event
Widely known as the place where Native American Art and Culture meet the world, Santa Fe Indian Market 2022 celebrates a Century of bringing together the most gifted Native American Artists from the U.S. and Canada with tens of thousands of connoisseurs and collectors from around the world. Today, Indian Market is the most prominent gathering of Indigenous Artists in the world and New Mexico’s largest celebration of arts and culture.
The Southwestern Association for Indian Arts marks Indian Market’s Centennial year not only by honoring its revered past, but by turning its eyes to the Century ahead.
Just as it created and built a marketplace for Native American Artists to sell their works over the past 100 years, SWAIA is now launching a new marketplace for the 21 st Century, Indigenous Collections, an online commerce site where all vetted U.S. and Canadian Indigenous Artists can show and sell their work year-round.
SWAIA is also launching its first Gallery show, Art Indigenous Santa Fe, to provide, during Indian Market, America’s top tier fine art galleries a place to exhibit work by the Indigenous Artists they represent. Art Indigenous Santa Fe will feature sculpture, painting, photography, performance art, and installations presenting major Indigenous Artists from the U.S. and Canada who have earned a place in today’s top tier of contemporary fine art. Taking place in the midst of Indian Market, Art Indigenous Santa Fe also brings a new and important fine art dimension, the world of galleries to its exciting milieux.
The Winter Indian Market will be expanded to the Santa Fe Community Convention Center December 3rd, 2022, to accommodate twice as many artists. SWAIA leadership continues to explore opportunities to provide greater recognition and sales opportunities to U.S. and Canadian Indigenous Artists.
As a powerful vehicle for showcasing Native American arts, Indian Market will continue and expand its role as a principal means for advancing the careers of today’s noted American Indian Artists.
