The Paseo

The PASEO’s 2019 theme is “Connections,” featuring work that celebrates, contemplates, or questions our interactions with each other, nature, or the world

Check out highlights from last year’s event….

Local, national and international artists convened in Taos to participate in The PASEO 2018 festival on September 14 and 15, 2018. The theme for 2018  was “Space.” A series of immersive and participatory art installations harnessed art, science and technology as tools for the contemplation of space, offering a view of society in sync with nature and the universe. Artistic Director Agnes Chavez promised, “Festival participants’ senses will be activated, curiosities stimulated, and minds transported to a wondrous universe in flux. We are thrilled to once again activate the streets of Taos with our 5th annual PASEO festival that engages our community and visitors in a participatory and multisensory experience.”

The nexus for The PASEO 2018 was the Space Cloud, an inflated pavilion designed by a Spanish architectural team that served as a gigantic illuminated nerve center for the weekend events. Within the Space Cloud a sci-artist projected an enlarged animated plankton while a New Mexico-based artist asked the Taos community to come together to explore its world from outer space. Another dozen artists and art collectives were introduced to add thought-provoking and playful art for public sharing., @thepaseotaos, #paseotaos,
