Santa Fe Art Institute
Santa Fe, New Mexico
The first gathering, sponsored in a previous grant by Lannan, provided a forum for a discussion about how cultural institutions allow, preserve, and promote apartheid in the cultural and arts sectors in order to maintain market control of the values and placement of minority creativity. SFAI sought support to continue this discussion in hopes of creating a new paradigm for creative institutions and practices that can counter the marketplace forces.
The Santa Fe Art Institute received support to convene a second meeting of artists, scholars, and cultural leaders on the theme of Dismantling Cultural Apartheid.
