ART/MEDIA was founded in 1984 by Eve Andrée Laramée, Duane Griffin, and Ann Zimmerman as an arts organization and multi-faceted social sculpture, deploying non-traditional vectors to distribute political art to reach a broad and diverse audience in New Mexico. ART/MEDIA invited local and nationally known artists to create socio-political artwork presented in the mass media: billboards on the interstate highways and along the Route 66 corridor, sound works on radio, short videos in the form of “public service announcements” on television, printed works in newspapers and magazines; as well as a performance art series, exhibitions and a lecture series. We hosted Hans Haacke, Jenny Holzer, Rachel Rosenthal, Terry Allen, Craig Owens, Godfrey Reggio and other artists, poets, and critics to create works and presentation in response to and in collaboration with local artists on subjects ranging from nuclear proliferation, environmental degradation, human rights and animal rights. The project was documented by video artists, Steina and Woody Vasulka. 1986.
