SITE Santa Fe’s curator gathers contemporary and avant-garde works of internationally recognized artists to enrich the cultural horizons of art patrons. Guests can check out the current exhibition, Agitated History, which contains works that challenge the legacy of historic figures and recreate events that remain as iconic as Atlas’s eternal struggle to juggle Earth and his ever-ringing cell phone. Sam Durant’s pencil drawings and large-scale light boxes render protest marches, sit-ins, and uprisings from events such as the 1960s liberation struggles, the Aboriginal rights demonstrations, and the American Indian movement, and actors perform Mark Tribe’s restaging of Vietnam-era political speeches. Future exhibitions include Time-Lapse, an installation of drawings and paintings that tracks the passage of time through hourly, daily, and weekly alterations, which ensure that, like a production of Hamlet performed by primates, no two shows are the same. Members may enjoy a roster of lectures and events, such as a screening of Lenny, a film biography directed by Bob Fosse illustrating the life and obscenity trial of political comedian Lenny Bruce. Members can explore artistic landscapes across the country with reciprocal North American museums and MCA programs.
