Documentation of events from the opening weekend of inSite05

inSite05 is the fifth staging of a binational contemporary art exhibition that explores the border culture between San Diego and Tijuana.

Last weekend (August 26-28) I attended the opening of the exhibition – a four day long series of events involving private receptions, the staging of a man shot across the border from Tijuana to San Diego, the inception of other “interventions,” a panel discussion by artists who created projects for the Interventions aspect of the exhibition.

inSite05 is ambitious in scope and includes various elements – museum exhibitions at the San Diego Museum and the Tijuana Cultural Center, public interventions on the streets of San Diego and Tijuana, panel discussions, online projects and more.  I documented the projects that I caught through the opening weekend and have posted the documentation at:


Such an exhibition is riddled with contradictions but overall it seems that most artists were sensitive to the issues revolving around the border.
