Episode 7 of Art Beat Conversations features artist Jamison Chas Banks. In our conversation Banks talks about an upcoming multi-faceted installation project he has been working on for a massive upcoming exhibition in Santa Fe, NM entitled SITElines.
SITElines is a new biennial exhibition series that explores contemporary art from the Americas, spanning Nunavut to Tierra del Fuego.
More about SITE Lines:
A new biennial exhibition series that explores contemporary art from Nunavut to Tierra del Fuego July 20, 2014 – January 2015 Opening Festivities July 17-19 SITElines: New Perspectives on Art of the Americas is a six-year commitment to a series of linked exhibitions with a focus on contemporary art and cultural production of the Americas. The exhibitions will take place in 2014, 2016, and 2018 and will be organized by a different team of curators, from locations throughout the Western Hemisphere. Through SITElines, SITE will establish a new programming hub called SITEcenter to generate connectivity between and during the exhibitions.
SITElines signifies a radical rethinking of SITE Santa Fe’s signature biennial exhibition, originally established in 1995. It represents a collaborative structure for planning its biennials, a vision for continuity between biennials, a commitment to community and place, and a dedication to new and underrecognized perspectives. This new multidimensional approach—together with a strong geographic focus—redefines SITE’s role at the forefront of biennial exhibition making and proposes new curatorial frameworks for biennials globally.
