About the Show

Art Indigenous Santa Fe, a cutting-edge Contemporary North American Indigenous Art Fair, will debut in Santa Fe, New Mexico, on Thursday August 18 through Sunday August 21, 2022. The new gallery focused art show will be directed and produced by Kim Martindale for the Southwestern Association for Indian Arts.

Art Indigenous Santa Fe will feature sculpture, painting, photography, installation and performance from worldwide galleries exhibiting contemporary Indigenous artists from the United States and Canada. The four-day art show will be held at Santa Fe’s El Museo Cultural, located in Santa Fe’s Railyard Arts District. The show will commence with a VIP opening night party on Thursday, August 18.

“As Santa Fe Indian Market celebrates one hundred years this August, we are committed to expanding our audiences and including contemporary Indigenous artists— alongside SWAIA’s century-old market that attracts approximately 120,000 visitors the third weekend of August. There are numerous worldwide galleries exhibiting North American Indigenous contemporary art and we’d like to invite these galleries to join us in Santa Fe,” said SWAIA’s executive director, Kim Peone (Colville/Eastern Band of Cherokee).

“Our intention is to create a Santa Fe-based art show that eventually becomes the Art Basel for Indigenous North American contemporary art. The inaugural year will correspond with SWAIA’s Centennial— which will attract over 120,000 collectors and art enthusiasts to Santa Fe in 2022. This is a moment that art collectors from around the world will not want to miss!” said veteran art show producer, Kim Martindale.
