Albuquerque Journal Auditorium

Followed by AIA member reception with the speaker at a private residence.

It is customary for a new US president to issue a Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) within the first 18 months after taking office.  President Trump followed this tradition with the release of his administration’s NPR in February 2018.  This talk will focus on what is the same and what is different about this new nuclear policy and how it may stabilize or destabilize the behavior of other nuclear nation states.  Finally, this talk will briefly address how Trump’s nuclear policy effects New Mexico. +More Info

The Spirit of Flamenco  Nicolasa Chavez

Nicolasa Chavez, Curator, International Folk-Art Museum
July 14, 2019 (Sun) 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.
Albuquerque Museum
2000 Mountain Rd NW, Albuquerque, NM 87104

Passionate, fiery, sensual, intense—these words describe flamenco’s highly expressive and distinctive dance and music. Nicolasa Chavez will explore the cultural roots and forces that allowed for its transformation from the caves of Andalusia to the cafés and theaters of Europe and New York and, inevitably, to the heart of New Mexico’s art scene. She will also discuss the popularity of flamenco around the world in such far away places as Argentina and Japan. +More Info
