Since its inception, ART Santa Fe provides Project Spaces for “alternative” work. This year, eight non-profit institutions and galleries host Project Spaces. One of them is the Santa Fe Art Institute, which sponsored “Gradient Ghosts I”, a wall installation and video by the artist collective Keep Adding. Keep Adding works in the field of multimedia and installation art. The artist group began in La Mesilla, New Mexico in 2001, making graffiti-inspired murals in abandoned buildings. Now the group is working in various kinds of media. I met with the two group members Brian Bixby and Noah MacDonald at Art Santa Fe. In this episode they talk about the beginnings of Keep Adding and their collaborative process. Brian lives and works in Santa Fe, Noah recently moved to Marfa. Art Santa Fe, July 11, 2008.
