New Media New Mexico

Visit Albuquerque and Santa Fe, New Mexico this June to experience an array of international new media art.
Parallel Studios in Santa Fe and 516 ARTS in Albuquerque announce New Media New Mexico, an ongoing effort to highlight new media art and events in New Mexico each summer. In June, 2014, New Media New Mexico focuses on Digital Latin America, an Albuquerque collaboration led by 516 ARTS, and Currents 2014 in Santa Fe presented by Parallel Studios.

New Media New Mexico has been initiated because New Mexico has become a gathering place for new media artists and enthusiasts from around the world. Currents has grown from its local roots in 2002 into an annual, international, citywide event in Santa Fe. Albuquerque became an international hub of activity for art that merges with technology and science with ISEA2012, the 18th International Symposium on Electronic Art, a massive collaboration led by 516 ARTS that helped put Albuquerque and New Mexico on the map in international art circles. Now, that spirit of collaboration continues with New Media New Mexico.
