During her Tamarind residency (early 2017) Judy Tuwaletstiwa drew upon her innovative handling of glass and textiles, exploring ideas of printing on alternative surfaces. Her large-scale work is informed by the history of the atomic bomb, the Trinity site, and the intersection of ancient and modern cultures. A celebrated artist with a long career of artist residencies, exhibitions, and collections to her name, her work is the subject of a major monograph recently published by Radius Books, and a retrospective exhibition at Center for Contemporary Art, Santa Fe.
Tamarind Institute presents a documentary highlighting a series of collaborations with three New Mexico artists, who all live and work within a 66-mile radius of the workshop. Each artist, Nina Elder, Tom Miller, and Judy Tuwaletstiwa, represent a unique response to New Mexico history, landscape, and culture. This project is sponsored by The University of New Mexico Center for Regional Studies.
