It is the mission of SITE's International Biennial to identify, distill, and present a new quality in the art of its time. The Eighth International Biennial, The Dissolve, surveys a striking creative development found in contemporary art: the synthesis of the handmade with the high-tech. The desire to animate the work of art—to bring it to life—defines the spirit of the Biennial. Its title, The Dissolve, describes the essential quality of this new sensibility merging with the old.
