SITELAB 12: NINA ELDER: “WHAT ENDURES”
SITE Santa Fe presents a solo exhibition SITElab 12: Nina Elder: What Endures from June 14 – September 15, 2019. The public is invited to the opening with the artist on Friday, June 14, from 5-7 pm.
New Mexico-based artist and researcher Nina Elder creates work that examines geologic time, the influence of human activity on the environment, and changing cultures and ecologies. Elder’s cross-disciplinary practice takes the form of drawing, painting, narrative performance, creative publication and curated excursions.
What Endures features a collection of drawings from three bodies of work created over the past decade. These works highlight some of the most environmentally impacted and economically important places on earth, question what is sacred, and explore the artist’s practice of “bearing witness” to the world.
