Description

The inSite Archive contains materials documenting the inSite organization and the projects of its artists. The digital collection highlights a selection of documents, images, videos, and sound files detailing project installations from the five inSite iterations dating between 1992 and 2005, drawn from the full InSite Archive held at the UC San Diego Library's Special Collections & Archives.

Created as a network of contemporary art programs and commissioned projects among non-profit and public institutions, inSite explored public or contextual art practice in the specific context of the San Diego-Tijuana border region. In 1980, Installation Gallery was opened in San Diego with a goal to present local and regional artists. In 1992, inSite was formed, replacing Installation Gallery. InSite has had five major versions: inSITE92, inSITE94, inSITE97, inSITE2000, and inSite_05, plus the Casa Gallina project in Mexico City dating from 2013-2018.
