Who do we become when we've lost the things that defined us?
When Linda Durham shuttered her internationally acclaimed art gallery after thirty-three years, she found herself navigating a sea of bewilderment. Risk-taking had long been the tour de force of her life. But had she failed, or had she succeeded? Change always comes at a price. Through delicious and dark, scintillating and salacious true tales of planned and accidental intersections with the exotic and quixotic, Durham pits her real self against her ideal self in a lifelong journey as serpentine as the Mobius strip her father made for her more than seven decades ago. Durham unabashedly pulls back the curtain on loves lost and found and on a life lived richly and openly amid fair fields and foreign wars, in places sacred and profane. Her incurable optimism gives inspiration and voice to the struggles of women worldwide, empowers those of us who feel derailed by a world out of control, and frees us to open the door to love.
Linda speaks about WONDER at Creative Mornings Santa Fe
For more than thirty years, Linda Durham has helped shape the contemporary-art scene of Santa Fe through her gallery, in its various incarnations, and her numerous projects that meld art and advocacy. Although she closed the doors of her gallery in 2011, Durham continues to reinvent herself and her relationship to the arts. In this lively and provocative talk, Durham will share her reminiscences of the many New Mexico artists with whom she has worked over the years and her perspective on the ups and downs of the Santa Fe art market from the 1970s to today. Join us for thirty years in the creative life of a "Santa Fe original."
Filmed and edited by Frank Cody of frankcody.com, this is an excerpt from Linda Durham's live reading from her original, autobiographical work, "Mobius Strip.”
