In Episode 12 artist Frank Buffalo Hyde spoke of a new indigenous art market hitting the scene in Santa Fe, New Mexico this year called IFAM (Indigenous Fine Art Market). I wanted to give a space for information and resource about this new market because it is produced by and for indigenous peoples, and I am hopeful it will bring wonderful things to the Native art world in the future!
What is the Indigenous Fine Art Market?
IFAM is a celebration of native art and the cultures that inspire it. It was born out of a positive movement by artists who want a voice in how their market is produced.
IFAM is a juried art show and will include only the highest quality artwork. Also featured will be different cultural performance stages representing tribal diversity.
