The art space opens SITE 20 Years/20 Shows:


IN 1995, SITE Santa Fe opened its doors with the inau­gu­ral ex­hi­bi­tion Long­ing and Be­long­ing: From the Far­away Nearby. The group show in­cluded works by more than 30 in­ter­na­tional artists. Among those rep­re­sented was mul­ti­me­dia artist Ann Hamil­ton, who pre­sented SALIC, a video in­stal­la­tion set in­side a train car that was po­si­tioned next to SITE. Twenty years later, Hamil­ton re­turns, one of 20 artists in­vited to par­tic­i­pate in SITE’s year­long ex­hi­bi­tion se­ries com­mem­o­rat­ing the in­sti­tu­tion’s first two decades. SITE 20 Years/20 Shows: Sum­mer, the sec­ond show in the se­ries, fea­tures five artists who have shown works at SITE at var­i­ous times through­out its history, sev­eral of whom col­lab­o­rate with other artists on their cur­rent projects. In ad­di­tion to Hamil­ton’s large-scale in­stal­la­tion the com­mon SENSE • the

an­i­mals, which opened at the Henry Art Gallery on the Univer­sity of Washington cam­pus last Oc­to­ber, the show in­cludes Ja­nine An­toni’s Honey Baby, a video pro­ject made in col­lab­o­ra­tion with chore­og­ra­pher Stephen Petro­nio. An­toni last showed at SITE in 2002 in the ex­hi­bi­tion taught tether teether. Amy Cut­ler, whose solo show Spring Suite opened in 2011, col­lab­o­rates with mu­si­cian Emily Wells and hair­dresser Adri­ana Pa­pa­leo for an im­mer­sive in­stal­la­tion based on Cut­ler’s paint­ings. Har­mony Ham­mond, who had a solo ex­hibit in 2002 called Mon­ster Prints, re­turns with sculp­tor Fran­cis Cape for An­gle of Re­pose, a di­a­logue be­tween two works of art. Dario Robleto last showed at SITE in 2012’s More Real? Art in the Age of

Truthi­ness and is now team­ing with sound his­to­rian Pa­trick Feaster and Lance Led­bet­ter, founder of Dust-to-Dig­i­tal Records, for a sound-based in­stal­la­tion.

SITE 20 Years/20 Shows was con­ceived as a way to gauge the evo­lu­tion of es­tab­lished artists, many of whom were emerg­ing when they first ex­hib­ited their work at the venue. SITE plans two more shows in the se­ries, com­ing in fall and win­ter. Through­out the se­ries’ run, the venue fea­tures videos of public pro­grams and per­for­mances that have oc­curred on the premises be­tween 1999 and 2007. The videos, as well as archival ma­te­ri­als com­mem­o­rat­ing its history, are in SITE­lab, an ex­hi­bi­tion space in­side the lobby. SITE also presents a chang­ing list of 20 ques­tions de­vel­oped from in­ter­views with peo­ple con­nected to the in­sti­tu­tion. The ques­tions are listed in­side the ex­hibit, and up­dated ver­sions are in­cluded as fresh in­ter­views are con­ducted. SITE 20 Years/20 Shows: Sum­mer and the con­cur­rent ex­hibit Un­sus­pected
