About the Juried Show

Art on the Edge is a biennial juried show organized by Friends of Contemporary Art (FOCA). This year’s exhibition was guest curated by Nicholas Baume, the director and chief curator of Public Art Fund in New York. Baume considered up to twenty works by each of 116 artists, then chose seven of those artists to represent here. The exhibition is on view at the New Mexico Museum of Art, April 16 – August 1, 2010.


Friends of Contemporary Art and the New Mexico Museum of Art gratefully acknowledge Nicholas Baume for his vision, expertise, and graciousness during the process of jurying and producing Art on the Edge.
