I'm excited to announce SiteWork — an artist-led organization whose mission is to support noncommercial contemporary art practices such as installation, video, and performance in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, North Carolina. SiteWork will provide exhibition opportunities, increase exposure, and facilitate exchange and collaboration among Triangle-based, national, and international artists engaged in site-related work.
SiteWork emerged from conversations between artists Lincoln Hancock, David McConnell and Harrison Haynes in early 2013. The planning and organizational team for SiteWork consists of Hancock and Haynes, plus artist Neill Prewitt and art advisor Chloe Seymore.
SiteWork/Hopscotch is an annual exposition of site-related art to debut in downtown Raleigh in conjunction with the Hopscotch Music Festival in September. The official visual arts companion to the acclaimed music festival, SiteWork/Hopscotch is comprised strictly of project-based work initiated by an international roster of artists who are either dual practitioners (artist/musicians) or artists working with sound or music-related ideas.SiteWork/Hopscotch 2013 features site-related work by seven artists at five different sites:
