Indian Market, whose first century was notable for a steady advance in scope, size, and prestige, launches its second century with Art Indigenous Santa Fe.
Today, Santa Fe Indian Market, now the largest event of its kind in the world, presents the juried works of more than 1,000 living Indigenous artists from the U.S. and Canada to more than 100,000 collectors and connoisseurs from the U.S. and abroad. As its reputation has grown, Indian Market has expanded to a full week of activities, entertainment, and events featuring cutting-edge emerging artists, Indigenous fashion designers, and prestigious awards presented to our artists for creative excellence in both traditional and contemporary art forms.
Continuing those advances into its second Century, a new spotlighted event, Art Indigenous Santa Fe, launches during the Centennial Indian Market.
Art Indigenous Santa Fe becomes Indian Market’s first “Gallery show,” bringing together 40 invited contemporary art galleries exclusively showing major Indigenous Artists from the U.S. and Canada who have earned a place in today’s top tier of contemporary fine art.
Art Indigenous Santa Fe, featuring sculpture, painting, photography, installations, and performances, premiers with a gala Benefit Preview the evening of Thursday, August 18th and runs through the closing of the Centennial Indian Market, Sunday, August 21, 2022. The four-day show will be mounted in El Museo Cultural, at the heart of Santa Fe’s Railyard’s contemporary art district, home to Site Santa Fe and the soon to open New Mexico Museum of Art’s Vladem Contemporary Museum.
Because space availability is limited for this highly selective show, please express your interest in participating as soon as possible by completing our Exhibitor Application Form.
The Southwestern Association for Indian Arts, producer of Santa Fe Indian Market, has engaged Kim Martindale, the founder of the LA Art Show and co-owner of the Objects of Art Shows in Santa Fe and San Francsico, to produce and direct Art Indigenous Santa Fe. As part of the most widely publicized and heavily attended fine art event of its kind, this new show is destined to make history by bringing together in one place, for the first time, the full range of contemporary Indigenous Fine Artists and galleries representing them from the U.S. and Canada.
