Site Cite Sight
A collective project by Placeholders
This exhibition stems from work conducted by the collective Placeholders around the idea of place. Artists meditated on questions such as what causes people to move to and from locations, what prevents people from moving to and from places, how do we categorize space and why, and what are the various components that help to define a place? The group traveled to and through locations in the American West to explore how land was used, marked, abandoned, occupied and ignored.
