The Trillion Space

The Trillion Space is a contemporary gallery and studio that features an array of urban artwork by local up-and-coming artists, as well as others from across the nation. The gallery, located Downtown at 510 Second NW, was originally founded and operated by Rocky Norton, who has since passed the torch to current head of affairs James Black. There are two artist collectives currently working within the Trillion Space— Paper Chase Press and Saba & Endemic—who specialize in screen printing and graphic design. Black is also the visual art projection guru for his own Projecta Selektaz, providing projection visuals for music events and parties in the Albuquerque and Santa Fe areas.

Carnival in the Desert

By Jessica Cassyle Carr
