In Taos, New Mexico, one of the oldest communities in America, a new outdoor art festival prepares to welcome 25 experimental artists. The PASEO 2016 brings the temporary art of installation, performance and projection to the streets of Taos and engages the entire community, youth and visitors included.

Three international artists will present at The PASEO 2016. Cie. Willi Dorner, a dance company from Vienna, will incorporate Taos people in a roving dance performance. Alexandra Gelis of Toronto will present “Raspao,” her hybrid snow cone food cart vehicle and moving sound sculpture. Bert Benally, from the Navajo Nation and New York City, will construct “Sand Rays,”a responsive sand painting. Another 22 juried art installations will also be included in the festival.

The PASEO 2016 happens September 23 to 25. The participatory installations occur on Friday and Saturday, 5 to 10pm. “[email protected]” workshops, lectures and demonstrations will be on Saturday and Sunday, 10am to 5pm. This is a New Mexico True event, part of the annual Taos Fall Arts Festival.
