Culture Shock

It's a well-known fact that some of the best contemporary art talent in New Mexico comes out of the graduate art program at UNM. These young artists aren't just talented, though—they're also organized.

Spiritually Incorrect: An Existential Comedy at the KiMo Theatre

Aung San Suu Kyi has spent much of her adult life in a nonviolent struggle to bring democracy to her home country of Burma. In exchange for her valiant efforts on behalf of her fellow citizens, the military dictatorship in charge of that nation has repeatedly thrown her in jail.

Art Magnified

Nutcracker on the Rocks

Art Magnified

Cynthia Cook

PaperGami

The Tulane Deli is long gone, replaced with a hip new Japanese paper shop and gallery called PaperGami (114 Tulane SE). Cynthia Cook, one of our most popular local artists, currently has an exhibit at the shop featuring some of her most recent mixed-media shadowbox pieces. Incorporating recycled pieces along with various organic bits, Cook's work has always had an attractive mystical pagan flavor. The show will be up through Jan. 4. The store is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. 255-2228.

So the dictators turned to schools, and in particular, textbooks.

Hell or High Water: Surviving Tibet's Tsangpo River

They say kayaking down the Tsangpo is akin to snowboarding down Everest—not just dangerous, but quite a bit stupid as well. Heller chronicles a 2002 attempt by an ornery team that somehow lived to tell the tale.
