Event Description

In the Summer of 2013, SITE will present a new project by Enrique Martínez Celaya (b. 1964) entitled The Pearl. For this exhibition, Martínez Celaya transforms all 15,000 square feet of SITE’s gallery space into an immersive installation environment that includes several large and small-scale paintings, sculptures, video, waterworks and olfactory interventions. For this project, the artist takes the notion of home as both a point of departure and a destination to craft a multi-sensory experience that is an extended metaphor for a journey of emotional and psychological reflection. Visitors will experience the installation in a specific sequence that allows the multilevel narrative to unfold. This installation will be accompanied by an exhibition of preparatory drawings. The artist is also collaborating with Santa Fe-based Radius Books to produce an artist book related to the exhibition.

This exhibition will be available for viewing:
July 13, 2013-October 13, 2013
Thursday-Saturday: 10am-5pm
Friday: 10am-7pm
