About

Along with CURRENTS NEW MEDIA's annual June Festival, we are moving into a year-round, permanent exhibition space on Santa Fe's famous Canyon Road. This gallery will act as a futuristic giftshop, a space for new media arts installations, and a library with digital and physical new media arts catalogues and information.

In 2010, Parallel Studios (a 501(c)3 organization) launched CURRENTS NEW MEDIA as an annual, citywide event. The Festival brings together the work of established and emerging new media artists from New Mexico, the United States, and the world for events showcasing interactive and non-interactive installations, multimedia performances, VR and AR environments, single channel video, animation, experimental documentary, web based/app art forms, robotics and 3D printing. Parallel Studios reaches out to local high and middle school students through its Youth Media Makers Program.

CURRENTS NEW MEDIA provides the community with opportunities to experience New Media Arts in traditional venues, public and outdoor spaces. Over 9,000 visitors attended festival events in 2018. The Festival is enjoyed by a broad demographic: children spinning through the galleries reveling in interactive new media, seniors contemplating image and meaning, working class families, savvy collectors, and more.

Your donation is tax-deductible and we will email you your tax letter at the end of the fiscal year.
