Internationally acclaimed, Albuquerque-based artist activator Guest, has been dedicated to creating art that inspires awareness. Joerael is an activator, muralist, portrait artist, visual artist, tattoo artist and frequent lecturer.
A visionary disruptor and art entrepreneur, Joerael is the founder of Mobilize Walls, he was the first artist in residence at the Santa Fe Institute, and was recently commissioned by Sky Railway to paint an exterior mural on a train consist.
A self-taught artist, Joerael’s fascination with decoding art came to the fore when watching the fall of the Berlin Wall on his television set as a nine-year-old boy—fully captivated by the graffiti, letters and names of the wall.
Joerael Numina’s solo show colorfully captures his personal life experiences into a poetic, rhythmic memory. Landcestor, is an exploration of new images rendered as relations to the land.
Joerael expresses this moment of color as an invitation to crumble like a cliff face after rainfall, to roar like a river running wide, and to crack open like a volcano blowing out of a mountain side.
The yearly scholarship supports cost of materials for New Mexico artists to show their work at a gallery. Revolt is happy to be working in conjunction with Arroyo Seco Live to provide opportunities to NM based artists.

Expression through the medium of painting and film is a vital part of life for Jesse with his Indigenous heritage deeply rooted in the oral tradition culture of his Pueblo Indian lineage and growing up in a creative household of art, film, and story.
Littlebird’s provocative paintings have garnished recognition in the Southwest art scene with several solo exhibitions and group shows during 2018-2023 and with several collectors commissioning his work nationally and globally.
My work is a Detournement of various elements from Western and Indigenous thought and histories, provoking critical reflection and serving as a testament to the enduring spirit of indigenous cultural realities.
The paintings serve as storytellers, capturing narratives that can be discovered by those who truly listen and engage with the artwork.
Each piece is a field for intricately intertwined symbolic representations that draw direct inspiration from the timeless cultural traditions found within the lands my people have inhabited since long before the Settler Colonial and will exist long after its passing.”

This is what I make my work about. The gaze, my hair, labor, care, black bodies, athletics and the multitude of binds encapsulating my identity. My work continues to build upon the increasing amount of diverse representation in the field of sculpture and extended media. My life offers an array of culturally subversive subject matter. Producing work about it opens up dialogue bringing in an audience who may not have been able to see themselves within the a space. This visibility is key to expanding the inclusivity of our practice of art making. Through multimedia installation, video, and performances I aim to examine contemporary issues around identity, race, and gender magnifying the narratives of queer black women making our stories more visible and accessible.

As a photojournalist, Cougar Vigil has amassed thousands of photos, primarily of his community in Northern New Mexico—his family and the Jicarilla Apache tribe. That personal archive now provides reference material as Vigil builds an experimental portfolio of work that defies the rote precision of traditional photography, and instead blurs boundaries—between scenes, narratives, the image itself, and the experience of making it. As a photographer, curator, and small business owner, Vigil integrates multiplicities of perspectives into his work. -Southwest Contemporary

Cherry Wood is an artist and notary public using self-created puns, photography, sculpture, and performance art. Currently, Wood is writing the story of his alter ego using Serenatas (Serenades) as an iterative part of the character. The camera captures both still and video images. The performances are in spaces like motels and the park. The work portrays Wood interacting with models he wraps in Saran wrap and sometimes bags in banana bags, representing a ritual action of love or death posing for the camera. Wood’s work has been exhibited in galleries, in museums, and at performance art festivals, including the Venice International Performance Art Week in Italy, the Detroit Historical Museum, and Canada’s Museum London. His work has been funded by the Canada Council for the Arts, the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Ford Foundation, NALAC, the Ontario Arts Council, and Red Bull Arts. Cherry Wood lives in a Detroit suburb. His upcoming events in June include a performance piece on the 30th June at Mighty Real/Queer Detroit and a 10-day performance workshop in Oaxaca, Mexico, with La Pocha Nostra.
