Unprecedented two-city exhibition of international contemporary art explores moments of urban crisis. Curated by Adriano Pedrosa, who is based in São Paulo, Farsites brings together more than 50 artists from the Americas, as well as Europe and Africa who work in a range of media, from photography to installation. Although a few works present the urban site as a map or overall network, many focus on the moments when these systems fail or fall short. In any city there are conditions that resist the collective desire for a clean, efficient appearance or modernization. The most ambitious catalogue documenting the fifth version of inSITE. This has become one of the most noteworthy San Diego-Mexico border art events. "Installation" and "site-specific". Essays accompany extensive catalogue. GREAT REFERENCE. N.B. There will be a second catalogue to be issued early in 2006 for inSite_05 Interventions and Scenarios . A third part will be issued in ealy 2007. We are also taking orders for those publications (price to be announced)
