SITE Santa Fe
The hub of Santa Fe’s avant-garde art scene, this nonprofit contemporary museum has hosted seven biennials, among the nation's only modern art biennials featuring international artists since 1995. The rest of the time, the museum's spare galleries have mounted large-scale temporary installations, many of them utilizing film and photography. There's no permanent collection—SITE is about constant movement—but notable past exhibits have included “The Disappeared/Los Desaparecidos,” with photography and mixed-media works by Latin American artists whose subjects had been killed or abducted by oppressive political regimes.
Tip: On Saturdays and summer Tuesdays, the beloved Santa Fe Farmers Market takes place across the street from the museum in a spectacular pavilion, which is slated to open in July 2008.
Admission: $10; free Fridays. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays.
