LOOM Indigenous Art Gallery

The LOOM Indigenous Art Gallery is Gallup’s smallest gallery, occupying about 30 square feet of space. But what the LOOM Gallery lacks in size, it makes up for in punch. LOOM is a cutting-edge and experimental space spotlighting rising star, innovative, and contemporary Indigenous artists from across the continent, from Los Angeles to Toronto. This next generation of artists is socially engaged, bringing fresh voices, different perspectives and a whole lotta style to Gallup.

2021 LOOM Gallery Show Schedule:

January + February: creation story: sacred migration by Demian DinéYazhi’
Demian DinéYazhi’ presents creation story: sacred migration celebrating the Diné migration story. “My Diné ancestors migrated to the Land we now revere as our ancestral homelands,” says the artist. “We migrated and traveled between worlds guided by holy beings and emerged into the Glittering World. In the First World everything was as black as night and only four clouds hovered in each direction: black, white, blue, and yellow.” Reflecting the First World, this piece “honors…our longing for survival, and our continued resilience into the present. It honors the sacred cosmic beings we are sans borders: sans gender binarism: sans manmade laws: sans white supremacy.”

March + April‘adinídíín – light by Rapheal Begay
‘adinídíín – light is a collection of photographs by Rapheal Begay from his ongoing series A Vernacular Response. Begay’s photographs document everyday moments of the Diné way of life, representing and exploring identity, place, and time. In the tradition of oral storytelling, each photograph is activated through relations, emotion, and belief. In line with self-determination and visual sovereignty, Begay embraces his role as a storyteller to contribute to and advocate for a never-ending Diné past, present, and future.
