The Dissolve: SITE Santa Fe Eighth International Biennial
Santa Fe, NM: SITE Santa Fe, 2010

Synopsis: In conjunction with the Eighth International Biennial, SITE Santa Fe published a substantial catalogue that includes full color illustrations of the work presented in The Dissolve as well as information about each artist. Curated by Sarah Lewis and Daniel Belasco, The Dissolve presented works by emerging and established artists working in diverse media that mined techniques of early animation and moving-image technologies to create a hybrid practice of homespun plus high-tech. This exquisitely designed volume arising from the event points both at this new sensibility emerging from the old and at the two-way nature of the dissolve in moving images as both ephemeral and generative. The Dissolve presents art by Robert Breer, Paul Chan, Martha Colburn, Thomas Demand, Ezra Johnson, Bill T. Jones, William Kentridge, Jennifer and Kevin McCoy, Raymond Pettibon, Rob Pruitt, Robin Rhode, Federico Solmi, and others.

This 212-page hardback volume includes an introduction by scholar Nancy Mowll Mathews. Sarah Lewis and Daniel Belasco contribute an essay on the concept of the hybridization of new media combined with traditional media such as painting, drawing, and collage. Also included are a timeline of animation practices and a transcription from an artist's roundtable.

The book is available at SITE and retails for $50.
