People Powered: New Mexicans and Social Movements

April 6October 19

Curated by Humans of New Mexico, this exhibition opens the day before our annual Recuerda a Cesar Chavez Festival and features photo portraits and first person stories of everyday New Mexicans and their experiences in social movements. The intent of the exhibition is to engage community in conversation about the ways social movements have shaped and defined New Mexico and the way New Mexicans have influenced social justice work beyond our state borders. There is a rich tradition of social justice initiatives in New Mexico. These serve as unique case studies promoting grass-roots, distinctive solutions based on the philosophy of people power. This exhibit is a community-wide effort to capture the complex issues that affect our communities and voice the everyday practices of resistance. Agency through testimonials is at the heart of “People Powered: New Mexicans and Social Movements.”

Son Como Son 25th Anniversary: A Retrospective Celebration of Salsa in Albuquerque, New Mexico

April 21
Albuquerque Journal Theatre
1701 4th St SW
Albuquerque, NM 87102 United States
+ Google Map

8 pm

This 25th anniversary concert is Son Como Son’s tribute to the rich lineage of Cuban music. It is a tribute to the dance—the dance between the Yoruban spiritual world and the Spanish colonialists, the dance between the past and the future, the dance where the ocean meets the desert. Most of all, it is a tribute to the dancers of Albuquerque—to each and every one who has buoyed this ship for the past 25 years and helped to put Albuquerque on the salsa map.
$24, $25, $27 w/ $2 discount for seniors/children 12 and younger, and $3 discount for NHCC members

La Canoa Legacy Talks: A Lie Halfway Around the World: The Carl Taylor Murder Case

2 pm

Gabriel Meléndez of the Center for Regional Studies will discuss “A Lie Halfway Around the World,” a chapter in his book, Hidden Chicano Cinema. The chapter explores the shallow mysteries and deep complexities surrounding the death of the travel-adventurer and freelance journalist Carl N. Taylor in 1936. Taylor was murdered as he readied himself to attend a gala event in Albuquerque. What appears as a set of non-sequential links between New Mexico’s chronic poverty, its religious traditions, and its reputation as an arts mecca results in a series of unexpected outcomes that stem from the intricate and layered master-chore boy relationship that drew together “the mountain boy,” Modesto Trujillo, and his writer-employer, Carl Taylor. The real-life drama far outstripped Hollywood’s attempt to market its sensationalistic B-movie, “The Lash of the Penitentes,” designed to exploit the fears and anxieties of the nation, Taylor’s tragic death, and smudge the dignity of the neighbors Taylor had come to know and admire.
Free event, open to the public.

Flamenco Concert: “Lorca in the Keys of Hands and Voice”

6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

A concert presented by Adam Kent (pianist) and Fernando Barros (flamenco singer), is a musical innovation inspired by his example. Lorca collected melodies from the Spanish folklore repertoire and transcribed them for the piano using two different concepts: 1) adapting the old melodies to some of his poem, and 2) singing the old songs using the expressive, emotive characteristics inherent to flamenco music.

Additionally, this concert offers a new innovation, arising from the profound influence Lorca and flamenco music had on the composer, singer and songwriter, Leonard Cohen. Our metamorphic reveal consists, not merely in translating Cohen’s lyrics into Spanish, but of combining Lorca’s poems that readily adapt to the melodies of Cohen, like a glove coupled to a hand.

This event is part of Semana Cervantina (Cervantine Week) to commemorate the “International Day of the Book” and the “Day of the Spanish Language.”

Book Presentation: “Madrid: A Culinary History”

6 pm to 8 pm 

As the capital city of Spain, Madrid is nowadays considered one of the most interesting “food towns” in the world. This is perhaps due to the wide variety of specialty dishes that its cuisine boasts ranging from the old- fashioned and traditional to the modern, and even the futuristic; a cuisine that has consistently received high praise from the likes of New York Times’ critic Mark Bittman and TV celebrity chefs such as Anthony Bourdain and Mario Battali.

Author Maria-Paz Moreno, professor of Spanish in the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures at the University of Cincinnati, looks at the gastronomical history of Madrid. She traces the historical origins and evolution of Madrid’s cuisine, exploring major trends, most innovative chefs, restaurants and dishes, and tells the story of this fascinating city from the point of view of a food lover. At the event: enjoy some Spanish tapas.

This event is part of Semana Cervantina (Cervantine Week) to commemorate the “International Day of the Book” and the “Day of the Spanish Language.”
