Event Description
Santa Fe-based artist Diego Romero merges autobiography with contemporary narratives and stories of colonial violence to investigate cross-sections between Indian life and the absurdity of human nature. Organized in conjunction with the 50th anniversary conference of the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts, Romero’s talk traces the arc of his practice over the past 20 years. During the talk, enjoy works from the Museum’s collection including two pieces by Romero and a range of Pueblo pottery selected for display. Romero’s visit is possible through the Judith M. Cooke Native American Art Fund and gifts made in memory of Joni Lisa Thompson.
