“for contemporary art aficionados”
SITE Santa Fe creates significant experiences for visitors by presenting the most innovative visual art of our time in new and engaging ways. Year-round exhibitions and educational programs expand the creative and intellectual potential of the audience and carry forward the region’s tradition of fostering avant-garde art. Launched in 1995 to organize the only international biennial of contemporary art in the United States, SITE has since presented eight international biennial exhibitions. Each drew global attention and brought important contemporary art to the Santa Fe community and beyond. Conceived to bring the global contemporary art dialogue to the art-rich Southwest, and as a major event on par with such renowned exhibitions as the Whitney Biennial and the Venice Biennale, it has become an integral event for contemporary art aficionados, attracting tens of thousands of visitors from around the world. Past biennial curators have either arrived as or have subsequently become superstars in the world of contemporary art, a testament to SITE’s foresight and artistic clout. Following their SITE Santa Fe Biennial guest curatorships, Francesco Bonami (1997), Rosa Martínez (1999) and Robert Storr (2004) were chosen to organize the Venice Biennales in 2003, 2005, and 2007, respectively. Dave Hickey received the coveted MacArthur “Genius Award” after organizing SITE’s Biennial in 2001.
