Artist Talk with Marcus Xavier Chormicle at Lincoln Historic Site


Join New Mexico Arts (NMA) for an in-person talk at Lincoln Historic Site with NMA 2024 Artist-in-Residence, Marcus Xavier Chormicle (Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians/Chicano), a Las Cruces-based multidisciplinary photographer who has been in residence at Lincoln Historic Site in Lincoln, New Mexico, since late February.

The talk takes place at 1 p.m., Thursday, March 28 at the Lincoln Historic Site, San Juan Mission Church, HWY 380, Lincoln, NM

The mission of the NMA Artist-in-Residence Program, in partnership with New Mexico Historic Sites, is to increase awareness of significant state cultural sites through the lens of contemporary creatives. While in residence, Chormicle is exploring the legacy of the Oryx species in Southern New Mexico as it relates to colonizing histories of land and peoples in the region. He intends to deepen his understanding of the Oryx habitat as well as create visual representations of the animal across the Lincoln Forest, Sacramento Mountains and surrounding communities.

New Mexico Arts will also host a talk with Chormicle on Instagram Live, @newmexicoarts, 6 p.m. Monday, March 18.
