Culture Shock

Art Overload

The city is abuzz with new art happenings—evidence that Albuquerque is a cultural epicenter teeming with talent. Two great shows opening this weekend are worthy of some attention. First, the South Broadway Cultural Center (1025 Broadway SE) presents Soul Expressions with works by the New Mexico African-American Artist Guild (more to come later this the month). The variety of styles and voices in Soul Expressions makes it a promising exhibit. The show is already on the walls, but join the artists for an opening reception on Friday, Jan. 11, from 6 to 8 p.m.

The Open Space Visitor Center (6500 Coors NW) officially opens Camino Real Tierra Adentro on Friday, Jan. 11. The show features the stunning, panoramic photos of Eniac Martinez, organized by the Mexican Foreign Ministry to promote knowledge of El Camino Real. If you're there around 5 p.m., look out the huge windows facing the Sandias to see 400 or so cranes take off from the field outside.

Modern Dance Op

All right, aspiring contemporary dancers, here's your shot. The Keshet Dance Company (214 Coal SW) is holding auditions for advanced modern dancers to perform in an evening-length piece based on the impact of the Holocaust on American Jews. The production is set to go on a short tour to Minneapolis in April, followed by a run in Albuquerque. All positions are unpaid (though travel expenses will be paid) and there is potential for paid positions in the fall. Auditions are on Friday, Jan. 11, from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the Keshet studio. Call 224-9808 for more info and to schedule an audition time.
