Atomic Surplus is a m ulti-faceted project that examines what it means to live in the birthplace of the atomic bomb. Through art that addresses not only New Mexico identity \, but also the larger realms of science\, environment\, war\, activism\, f ear and hope\, Atomic Surpluswill consist of a major group exhibit ion\; a sub-exhibition of historic artworks\; a film series\; a lecture ser ies\; hands-on\, field-based children's education program\; essay-driven ex hibition catalog\; and online archive.

\n

Through a multi-pronged approach and working with diverse partners\, Atomic Surplus illustrates a diversity of perspectives on the nuclear legacy. The project not only references historical moments and regional con nections\, but uses New Mexico and the WWII-era as a touchstone for looking at much more global and contemporary consequences.

\n

As centerpiece of the Atomic Surplus project\, this group exhibition sets the tone for its auxiliary programs and publications . The work of 12 international artists represents a variety of topics and v iewpoints. Presented in various media\, the artworks depict everything from the first atomic bomb tests to nuclear waste facilities to the thriving wi ldlife in Chernobyl to the meltdown in Fukushima to the promise of nuclear power. Atomic Surplus does not take a position on the nuclear issu e\, but exposes audiences to a range of imagery and ideas. A color catalog accompanies the exhibition\, with short essays from artists\, scholars\, hi storians\, and others.
