From "Billy the Kid" to "Breaking Bad," movies and television have portrayed and marketed our state into the present day. Over the past decade, film production in New Mexico has enjoyed a renaissance, thanks to state incentives. However, film has long been a part of New Mexico’s landscape, and the state’s landscape and people have often been featured in film.

Funding to support educational programs for this exhibition provided by: The Albuquerque Chapter of the Links, Incorporated. 

The opening is included with your paid admission to Albuquerque Museum.

The State of Film

The Albuquerque Museum of Art and History is opening a brand-new exhibit titled Hollywood Southwest: New Mexico in Film and Television this weekend. Curated by Dr. Paul A. Hutton, professor of history at the University of New Mexico, the exhibit traces the history of the state as both a location and a subject. From Billy the Kid to “Breaking Bad,” our state has appeared in scores of film and television projects. The memorabilia-filled exhibit opens Feb. 25 and will run through Aug. 27. The grand public opening will take place this Saturday from 1 to 3pm. Dr. Hutton himself will open the exhibit with a lecture on the history of filmmaking in New Mexico. Get there early, because seating is limited. Future events related to the exhibit include a panel discussion on the role of women in film (March 16), a look at the cinematic legacy of the Wild West (April 20), a local indie film night (May 18), a “Trollywood” tour (April 29) and more. For additional info on the exhibit, go to The Albuquerque Museum is located at 2000 Mountain NW.
