SITE Santa Fe Announces Curators and Theme of Its 2018 Edition

SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO—The New Mexico biennial SITE Santa Fe announced that José Luis Blondet, curator of special projects at LACMA; Candice Hopkins, an independent curator; and Ruba Katrib, curator of MoMA PS1 in New York, have been appointed the curators of its upcoming exhibition.

Dedicated to the art of the Americas, the biennial invites artists to question notions of private property, displacement, belonging, and immigration. The theme was inspired by Argentinian writer Julio Cortázar’s 1946 short story “Casa Tomada” (House Taken Over), which is about two siblings who are forced out of their long-cared-for ancestral home.

The Los Angeles–based artist Stephanie Taylor, who is known for her work exploring the relationship between sound and objects, has converted the exhibition’s press release into a song. Taylor will also transform SITE Santa Fe’s future announcements into musical melodies, which will all be performed the conclusion of the event, which will run from August 3, 2018 to January 6, 2019.
