SITE Santa Fe Announces Complete Artist List for 2014 Biennial

SITE Santa Fe announced the names of the 45 artists who will participate in the institution’s summer biennial at an event at the Zona Maco art in Mexico City last night. After a two-year biennial hiatus, SITE is relaunching its signature exhibition this July with a new format that focuses entirely on artists from the Western Hemisphere. Titled “SITElines: New Perspectives on Art of the Americas,” the new biennial will tackle a different theme each year and this year’s is “Unsettled Landscapes.” Among the 45 partiicpants are Santa Fe-based artist Jamison Chas Banks, Los Angeles-based artist Andrea Bowers, London and Nassau-based artist Blue Curry, Chicago-based artist Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle, and recently deceased photographer and scholar Allan Sekula.

“With “Unsettled Landscapes,” we build connections from Santa Fe to the rest of the Americas, we explore untold stories and perspectives, and we link between our past and our present,” said Irene Hofmann, Phillips Director and Chief Curator of SITE Santa Fe. “First Native American land, then a Spanish Kingdom, a Mexican Province, and an American Territory, all before statehood, New Mexico is a rich microcosm of the Americas. These artists represent multiple generations and regions throughout the Western Hemisphere. Our show includes important new and existing works, 13 new commissions and several off-site installations. Our aim was to curate a dynamic exhibition that shows how themes of landscape, territory and trade weave throughout the work of artists from every corner of the Americas.”
