The Santa Fe-based multimedia artist has had a busy year. She just wrapped up working and teaching at the Institute of American Indian Arts and was named one of THE Magazine’s 12 New Mexico Artists to Know back in January. Earlier this summer, she also spent a month working with arts organizations in Turkey and participated in the UCross Foundation fellowship for Native artists in Wyoming.
Later this fall, Brandow is going to be making a move to Boston, where she will be working on a master’s program at the Harvard School of Design.
In the midst of preparing for this major change of scene, Brandow said she’s also been taking time to focus on realigning herself creatively. The result, she said, is a new body of work, aimed at paring things down and getting “back to the basics.”
