> DESCRIPTION

Throughout his career, Santa Fe-based artist Peter Sarkisian has been an innovator working at the cutting edge of multi-media art. Juxtaposing projected video and physical objects, his installations explore the intersection of moving image and sculpture. Underlying Sarkisian’s hybrid form of installation is a commentary on the ubiquity of the moving image in contemporary society—whether in television, movies, or video games. This small retrospective presents Sarkisian’s work spanning 18 years.


The exhibition was curated by Susan Moldenhauer and organized for travel by the University of Wyoming Art Museum. The New Mexico Museum of Art presentation of this exhibition is made possible through the generosity of donors to the New Mexico Museum of Art Director's Leadership Fund and Exhibitions Development Fund, and Friends of Contemporary Art + Photography.
