PhotoSummer, now in its fourth year, is a collaborative initiative that represents and actively promotes historical and contemporary photography in New Mexico. Taking the rich legacy of photography in New Mexico as a point of departure, the exhibitions and public programs around PhotoSummer represent the continued energy and support of the photographic arts in the region.

Founded and initiated by the UNM Art Museum and 516 Arts, PhotoSummer 2018 is organized by CENTERAxle Contemporary, American Society of Media Photographers in Santa Fe. It features public programs focusing on photography that spans regional, national and international artists, curators and scholars. Showcasing the work of a diverse group of established and emerging artists whose work is strong in concept and in execution, this collaborative effort highlights New Mexico as a place where excellent photographic work is produced, taught, and exhibited, as well as where people from near and far gather around photography.

CENTER’s featured 2018 programming includes projected showcase of images exploring two themes: Conjured Futures, that will take place during the Interplanetary Festival, and Color Cue, happening alongside the Currents New Media Festival.
