Beau Monde: Toward a Redeemed Cosmopolitanism
SANTA FE  •  SITE Santa Fe  •  Ongoing
SITE Santa Fe's Fourth International Biennial, Beau Monde: Toward a Redeemed Cosmopolitanism, curated by Dave Hickey, includes works by 27 artists working in painting, sculpture, installation, film, and video. Hickey, known for his work as an art critic, essayist, and professor, has created an exhibition, which reflects his idea of a beau monde or "beautiful world," through the selection of works which visibly express the influence and confluence of many cultural sources. The L.A. and Berlin-based architectural team, Graft Design, were selected to re-define the space of the SITE Santa Fe facility, formerly a beer distribution warehouse. Participating artists include: Kenneth Anger, Jo Baer, Jeff Burton, James Lee Byars, Pia Fries, Gajin Fujita, Graft Design, Frederick Hammersley, Marine Hugonnier, Jim Isermann, Ellsworth Kelly, Josiah McElheny, Darryl Montana, Sarah Morris, Takashi Murakami, Nic Nicosia, Kermit Oliver, Jorge Pardo, Ken Price, Stephen Prina, Bridget Riley, Ed Ruscha, Alexis Smith, Jesús Rafael Soto, Jennifer Steinkamp & Jimmy Johnson, Jessica Stockholder, and Jane & Louise Wilson. In addition, SITE Santa Fe's Art & Culture series offers concerts, lectures and events to complement the exhibition.
