SITE Santa Fe Seventh International Biennial, Lucky Number Seven / Interview with Laura Heon / part 1/2

July 17, 2008

SITE Santa Fe was founded in 1995 to provide the general public, and in particular the extensive group of artists in Santa Fe, with access to global contemporary art. Some of the most known artists live here in New Mexico such as Bruce Nauman, Richard Tuttle and Susan Rothenberg. The idea to hold a biennial exhibition was there from the beginning. SITE Santa Fe’s biennials were conceived by now renowned curators like Bruce Ferguson, Francesco Bonami or Robert Storr (the curator of 2007 Venice Biennial). This year’s biennial has been curated by Lance M. Fung and is called “Lucky Number Seven“. In this episode, SITE Santa Fe’s director Laura Heon talks about the mission of SITE Santa Fe, the opening weekend, and why she chose Lance M. Fung as the curator for the 2008 edition of the biennial. The video also provides an exhibition walkthrough that has a look at the work of the artists Ahmet gt, Eliza Naranjo Morse, Luchezar Boyadijev, Mandla Reuter, Michal Budny, Nadine Robinson, Nora Naranjo Morse, Ricarda Denzer, Rose B. Simpson, Wael Shawky, and Zbigniew Rogalski. SITE Sante Fe Lucky Number Seven, July 8/9, 2008. Part 1/2.
