The 'art and glamour' of Native American fashion

On Friday, Aug. 19, the Institute of American Indian Arts’ Museum of Contemporary Native Arts in Santa Fe opened its “Art of Indigenous Fashion” exhibition, which features works from Indigenous designers across North America. The exhibition is the first of its kind for the museum, disrupting the idea of Indigenous clothing as artifact rather than fashion. Amber-Dawn Bear Robe — curator, art historian and professor at the Institute of American Indian Arts — curated the exhibition with the specific goals of amplifying the work of Indigenous designers and showcasing the diversity of Native fashion.

REVIEW: ‘Hocus Pocus 2’ will make you witch for a better movie

As you make your way through October, you may find yourself seeking out movies and Halloween specials from your favorite TV shows to get you in the mood for spooky season. An all-time favorite of Halloween lovers is the 1993 film “Hocus Pocus.” While for many years this film has been a Halloween staple with a conclusive and relatively satisfying ending, it, like many other classic films, has fallen victim to the dreaded sequel. On Sept. 30, “Hocus Pocus 2” was released on Disney+, and many fans flocked to the streaming service to see the Sanderson sisters resurrected once again. Unfortunately, the film does not live up to its predecessor, and it’s difficult to imagine it becoming nearly as popular.

‘How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days’ presents classic rom-com fare with skill

This review contains spoilers As any true romantic comedy lover knows, the key components to a classic early 2000s rom-com are simple and hardly ever disappoint. The setting must, of course, be New York City, one of the romantic leads must (obviously) be a journalist and there absolutely has to be a scene where one romantic lead chases the other down (preferably via cab or motorcycle) to tell them they love them before they make a life-altering decision.

Tips for maintaining healthy communication in arguments

Throughout the course of any relationship, you may find yourself in a situation where you and your partner get into an argument. While some might see a lack of arguing as a sign of a healthy and successful relationship, this is not necessarily the case.

REVIEW: ‘A League of Their Own’ (2022) isn’t quite a grand slam

On Aug. 12, 2022, Amazon Prime released their eight-episode adaptation of the 1992 film “A League of Their Own,” originally directed by Penny Marshall. Unlike the original film, the 2022 adaptation, directed by Jamie Babbit, focuses heavily on queerness and self discovery. While the series does a good job of discussing gender, race and sexuality-based disparities, there is still a lot that could have been done better to make it a more enjoyable show.

Anna Westfall’s ”Bright Field” places identity under the microscope

On Monday, Aug. 1, artist and associate professor Anna Westfall’s “Bright Field” installation opened at the Spectra Gallery housed in the University of New Mexico Honors College. Westfall is an associate professor at Eastern Mennonite University, as well as a Master of Fine Arts recipient from the University of New Mexico. Prior to this, she has exhibited her work in Virginia, Georgia, Washington D.C., Massachusetts and New Mexico. “Bright Field” is a series of ceramic sculptures arranged in a radiating formation from the center wire piece. Each form was either thrown on a pottery wheel with added handmade additions or was entirely handmade, according to Westfall.

REVIEW: ‘Obvious Child’ brings abortion to the rom-com

Gillian Robespierre’s 2014 romantic comedy “Obvious Child” seamlessly portrays the difficult realities of young adult life, complete with heartbreak, job instability and unplanned pregnancy. “Obvious Child,” with its frank discussion of abortion and reproductive rights, earns a solid place alongside other romantic comedies like Michael Showalter’s 2017 film “The Big Sick,” handling serious issues with heart, thought and care, while remaining funny and alive all the while.
