2005, 09:40 minutes, colour, English


Numbe Whageh looks at the controversy caused by a public art project commissioned by the city of Albuquerque, New Mexico, called the Cuerto Centenario. Cuerto Centenario was originally designed to commemorate the entrance of Don Juan De Onate into New Mexico. The art project dealt with historical trauma caused by the conquistador Don Juan De Onate who brutally colonized the Pueblo people in what is now New Mexico. Naranjo - Morse, who was one of the artists, looks at public art through first hand experience. The political and historical implications still play out in the cultural landscape as the city of Albuquerque attempts to find resolution through art.
