Upcoming Conference

Conflux

Coming Together in Conversation

University of New Mexico - Albuquerque, New Mexico   |   November 02 - November 04, 2018

From Many, To Many

Taking its name from the meeting of two rivers, the theme of the 2018 West/Southwest is based on the notion of meeting, exchanging, and transforming. It is based on the transformative power of conversation.

From the keynote dialogue with Ana Teresa Fernandez and Mario Ontiveros to the many opportunities for sharing, Conflux is a conference of member-initiated creative conversations, hands-on collaborative projects, roundtable discussions, demonstrations, member's exhibition, artistic feedback and cultural site visits which pivot around photographic practice and contemporary culture.

Exhibition Opportunity!

The exhibition, Conflux Coming Together in Conversation, is an open call to those attending the joint SPE W/SW conference. The exhibit aims to spark a visual dialog among participants by forging visual and conceptual similarities among the exhibited works.
