inSite http://insite.org.mx/wp/

inSite is dedicated to the realization of binational collaborative arts partnerships among nonprofit and public institutions in the San Diego-Tijuana region. Operating through a unique collaborative structure that is based on the active participation of cultural and educational institutions in the US and Mexico, inSite is focused on promoting artistic investigation and activation of urban space. The distinctive character of inSite, understood as a cultural practice of intervention in the urban social weave, stems from a commitment to facilitate new works developed through a long-term engagement with the artists. The core of inSite, as it has evolved over the past twelve years, is commissioning projects as interventions in the extraordinary context of the San Diego-Tijuana border region. The axis of this project is a process of two-year periodic residencies that culminate in the realization of works sited in the public domain throughout the two cities. The flexibility to respond to the shifting interests of artists and institutions and, in turn, to test new structures of collaboration and venues for the presentation of innovative work, has been a fundamental characteristic of this project.

In 2014 introduced the development of the sixth edition of inSite, inSite/ Casa Gallina. Founded in 1992, inSite has evolved through a commitment to commissioning new art projects by way of processes that privilege research, residency, and context specific, co-participative experiences. The platform for this expanded version of inSite, conceived to unfold over 5 years, is a neighborhood in the megalopolis of Mexico City.
