CONVERSATION: Ciboleros & Comancheros: Commerce, Identity and History

Live from 516 ARTS! Artist Juanita J. Lavadie and digital archivist Jillian Hartke in conversation with exhibition co-curator Alicia Inez Guzmán, PhD, spoke to a full house, sharing two distinct histories of commerce in New Mexico. In the 20th-century, trade shows and agricultural fairs were integral to the exchange of goods, services, and knowledge. Jillian Hartke also shared images of such events from the Albuquerque Museum’s Photography Archives and spoke about how they shaped New Mexican identities.
