State of Mind: New California Art Circa 1970,
is an investigation of the development of conceptual and related avant-garde activities among artists living in California in the late 1960s and early 70s. This exhibition features approximately 150 works by 60 artists in a range of media including video, film, photography, installation, drawing, painting, performance documentation and ephemera.
Linda Mary Montano: Always Creative,
is a concentrated survey of the work of American performance artist Linda Mary Montano, which considers the breadth of the artist's practice through a careful selection of works from 1969-present. In a career spanning over forty years, Montano has created works in a variety of forms that explore the interaction between art and life.
Mungo Thomson: Time, People, Money, Crickets, includes a selection of nine works in a range of media including film, video, artist's books, and installations by this California-based artist whose conceptually-inclined practice stands in dialogue with the work of many of the artists included in State of Mind. Mungo Thomson is a Los Angeles-based artist whose work explores mass culture, cosmology, and reception with economy and wit.
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.
