Friday, July 7 // Muñoz Waxman Gallery // 6-8pm // $15-$25 sliding scale
The New Mexico Contemporary Ensemble Collective is pleased to present a program of music and performance art coinciding with the Cryin’ Out Loud exhibition on women and femmes artists and activism. The program will include music by Pauline Oliveros, text by Alejandra Pizarnik, performance art by Alison Knowles, and more. The works presented seek to explore artistic engagement in political revolutions over the past century via text and sound. Please join us July 7th, 2017 at 6pm for a pre-concert presentation and at 7pm for the concert. NMCE is delighted to be joined by Marisa Demarco, an Albuquerque-based journalist, performer, and event curator, for a pre-concert talk about DIY feminist music festivals. The New Mexico Contemporary Ensemble, founded in Spring of 2016, presents summer programming throughout New Mexico that focuses on new works by composers throughout the Americas.
The New Mexico Contemporary Ensemble aims to bring the music of the past century’s most prolific and creative composers to the audiences of New Mexico. By commissioning and programming modern classical music of the Americas, they present an assortment of artistic landscapes that will continue to resonate within the diverse culture of the Southwest. Through a concert series in the summer months and collaborations with active composers and New Mexico’s arts community, they hope to challenge and expand their audiences’ conception of classical music.
