THE ARMORY SHOW

CCA, Muñoz Waxman Main Gallery
April 11 - May 30, 2014

In celebration of its 35th anniversary, CCA presents an exhibition of 100+ artworks, a gala with auction, a benefit film festival, and a series of public programs that honor the countless artists who have made Santa Fe a mecca for the arts.

PUBLIC RECEPTION: Friday, April 11, 6-8pm

In the late 1970s many artists came together for a series of major exhibitions, housed in the old armory buildings in Santa Fe. These independently organized art shows evidenced a rich community of artists, working together to create new opportunities for themselves and their peers. These exhibitions, many bearing the title, The Armory Show, were important – not only in bringing artists together, but also in cementing the Armory site as one of Santa Fe's most important cultural centers. CCA is one of several organizations to make a home within the complex of Armory buildings; Rising Sun Video Collective, Armory for the Arts, Plan B, Santa Fe Children's Museum, Santa Fe Performing Arts have, at one time or another, operated from within the armory complex.

As CCA celebrates its 35th anniversary, The Armory Show is revisited. Less a historical reenactment and more a survey of stylings, creations, and most importantly people, The Armory Show celebrates the artists who have made Santa Fe an arts mecca. Select artists from the early Armory Show exhibitions have been invited to submit new work. Other established artists have been asked to invite a representative group of younger or lesser-known artists to participate alongside them. Over 100 Santa Fe-based artists will be included, with auxiliary performances and happenings, including professional development seminars, a series of historic story-telling events, and panel discussions about the current state of the arts in Santa Fe. Many local partners contribute to concurrent public programming. The Armory Show of 2014 will be a celebration of old and new, focusing on the role of artists in creating Santa Fe. Artworks in the show are for sale and benefit the artists, CCA, and the Capital High School film program.
