site santa fe

pure and simple.
rocky mountain news reports on a somewhat controversial art gallery in santa fe, nm-SITE.
"The first thing visitors to the 2004 biennial at SITE Santa Fe saw was an exterior wall covered with big rubber rats and mangled baby dolls..."

but the new gallery director, laura heon, assures that those types of things will not happen again. she does seem to have a mild sadistic fetish about the space though:

"I love the building. It's not precious. It's an excellent playground. You can push it around."

a new exhibition starting july 9th called still points of the turning world will be on display until january. it is performance art meant to put the viewer "in the realm of the senses...but not to overwhelm the senses..."
