Axle Contemporary

  • Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art 409 East College Boulevard Roswell, NM, 88201 United States (map)

Axle Contemporary - “E Pluribus Unum” is a mobile photographic portrait studio.

Participants enter the studio and are photographed holding a small object that has some special personal meaning to them. The black and white photograph is printed immediately in the solar-powered studio. One copy is given to the participant; another is pasted to the exterior of the studio-gallery.

“E Pluribus Unum: New Mexico Southeast” will be the fourth in this series of projects which explore the people of New Mexico. Past projects were in Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and the Navajo Nation. To date, more than 1,500 people have participated. BE ONE OF THEM!!! In 2019 a book will be published, and the Roswell Museum and Art Center will host an exhibition of the portraits.

This is a FREE event!
