A portrait of Linda Mary Montano at SITE, Santa Fe
An institution promising "the most innovative visual art of our time" presented "in new and engaging ways" has to live up to its own hype. SITE Santa Fe delivers in spades. Opened in the mid-1990s to stage the only international contemporary art biennial in the US, SITE has played a big role in bringing Santa Fe out of its cowboy-art past and into the avant-garde forefront. A recent example of SITE's programming stared Linda Mary Montano, who in keeping with her "endurance-performance" style, sang songs by Linda Ronstadt and Raka Mukherjee while propped atop a hydraulic scissor lift for seven hours straight.
