Each semester SITE accepts proposals from students to exhibit in our two on-campus galleries during the following semester.

Leading up to the proposal deadline we offer several opportunities for students to get feedback and advice on how to build a strong proposal as they prepare their exhibition proposal for review.

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP by emailing SITE at


In the Spring of 2020, SITE Galleries hosted the exhibition Be Water: 和你 Flow. This exhibition brought together six artists from Hong Kong responding to the political tumult transforming their hometown in their absence.

The exhibition presented through this range of interdisciplinary work—from sculpture, painting, fiber, sound, video, photography, to neon—the artists’ attempts to process what was happening in their city while on the other side of the world. 

This show desired to personalize political events, as well as bring a conversation to the table around a growing need for pathways towards solidarity that are transcendent—transnational, intersectional, and global.

As part of this exhibition, a panel discussion was planned for the spring, as a way to delve into the nuances of these issues, but also to engage with different responses and perspectives from members of the SAIC community. 

In light of the global pandemic and orders to stay at home, that conversation could no longer happen in person.  On Tuesday, July 21st SITE hosted a virtual panel discussion, looking at the role of art and the  COVID-19 pandemic in the uprisings that unfolded over the last year, and how we will move into the future. The panel was followed by a Q&A with the artists with an opportunity for viewers to both share responses and ask questions via live chat.
