Dr. and Mrs. Price began giving Japanese woodblock prints, Indian and Southeast Asian sculpture, and Middle Eastern textiles to AMoA in 1995. Through their continuing generosity over the years, they have fundamentally changed the museum’s Permanent Collection. A portion of their gifts occupy the Price Gallery of Asian Art, which is the only space in the museum dedicated to exhibiting artworks in the Permanent Collection. The Price Gallery only allows for the showing of a small portion of the hundreds of artworks given over the years. This exhibition will be an opportunity for museum visitors to see artworks that have not been on view in recent history. This includes artworks from Japan, India, Afghanistan, Thailand, Cambodia and other Asian and Middle Eastern countries.

Border Cantos | Sonic Border
3rd Floor Gallery
August 10 –December 9, 2018
Border Cantos, a unique collaboration between American photographer Richard Misrach and Mexican American sculptor/composer Guillermo Galindo, uses the power of art to explore and humanize the complex issues surrounding the United States-Mexico border.

Misrach, who has photographed the border since 2004, documents landscapes and objects, including things left behind by migrants. His large-scale photographs, along with grids of smaller photos, highlight issues surrounding migration and its effect on regions and people.

Responding to these photographs, Galindo fashioned sound-generating sculptures from items Misrach collected along the border, such as water bottles, Border Patrol “drag tires,” spent shotgun shells, ladders, and sections of the border wall itself. The sounds they produce give voices to people through the personal belongings they have left behind.

October 26 – December 30, 2018
For the past twenty years, artists from around the United States have convened in the small town of Tucumcari, New Mexico to engage in a weeklong workshop making cast iron sculpture at Mesalands Community College (MCC). Artist and MCC foundry director D’Jean Jawrunner began inviting artists to Tucumcari for an annual iron pour in 1999. The Mesalands Iron Pour is distinctive for its inclusivity, connecting a diverse group of artists across gender, age, and level of experience. This exhibition will include examples of at least 50 artworks created over 20 years of participation in the workshop, and will include works such as photographs, prints, and installations representing the artistic extensions of the medium.
