20 Years / 20 Shows

Spring 2016

SITE Santa Fe presents 20 Years/20 Shows, a year-long series in four parts, featuring 20 shows that revisit SITE’s dynamic exhibition history. Each of the 20 shows in the series reconnects us with an artist who exhibited with SITE in the past as we invite them to return to present new and recent work.

The fourth and final installment of SITE 20 Years/20 Shows will include exhibitions by Terry Allen, Luis Camnitzer, and Wangechi Mutu with Edgar Arceneaux that run from March 19 – May 22, 2016.

Terry Allen

THEN: In 2010 Terry Allen participated in the group exhibition One on One with drawings and video sculptures inspired by the life of Antonin Artaud. His work was also featured in the 2013 traveling exhibition State of Mind: New California Art Circa 1970 curated by Karen Moss and Connie Lewellen.

NOW: Allen will present a new immersive narrative video and sound installation entitled Memwars. In this new work, video projections of a script being read move slowly along tracks on the wall to create a destabilizing and ever-changing experience of cinema and storytelling.

Luis Camnitzer

THEN: In 2007 Luis Camnitzer’s work was featured in the group exhibition The Disappeared/Los Desaparecidos. More recently, his work was included in the 2014 SITElines biennial exhibition Unsettled Landscapes.

NOW: Camnitzer presents two works, separated by forty years in the artist’s career, where disorientation plays a central roll in the viewer experience. The Shift of the Center of the Earth (1975) and Cardinal Points (2015) each take up a single room with interventions in space that pose questions about location, orientation, and power.

Wangechi Mutu

THEN: In 2006 Wangechi Mutu’s work was featured in SITE Santa Fe’s Sixth International Biennial: Still Points of the Turning World, curated by Klaus Ottmann.

NOW: Mutu will collaborate with artist Edgar Arceneaux on a site-specific drawing installation. The artists will be in residence at SITE in early March leading up to the exhibition opening as they create this collaborative work directly on the gallery walls. In addition to this collaborative work, Mutu will present The End of Eating Everything, 2013 the artist’s first animated short that is a mesmerizing commentary on mass consumption in contemporary life.
