    SITE Santa Fe Biennial

    1606 Paseo de Peralta
    July 25 - October 26

    Curated by Lance M. Fung

    If insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result, curator Lance M. Fung hopes to make the seventh SITE Santa Fe Biennial sane. Principals from eighteen international organizations have been named to a curatorial team, including William Wells of Townhouse Gallery in Cairo, Tsukasa Mori and Yuu Takehisa from the Art Tower Mito in Japan, Guillermo Santamarina of El Museo Experimental El Eco in Mexico City, Joseph Sanchez from Santa Fe's own Institute of American Indian Arts Museum, and participants from Beijing, Warsaw, Vienna, and Seoul. These partners each selected several emerging artists or artists' collaboratives, from which Fung chose one to send to New Mexico this past January for a monthlong residency. For the exhibition, the invitees—many of whom have never before traveled to the United States—will create ephemeral, site-inspired works.
