The inSite Archive contains materials documenting the inSite organization and the projects of its artists. The digital collection contains documents, images, videos, and audio files detailing project installations from the five inSite iterations. The digital collection highlights selections from the full InSite Archive which can be found in the Special Collections & Archives at UC San Diego.
Created as a network of contemporary art programs and commissioned projects among non-profit and public institutions, inSite explored public or contextual art practice in the specific context of the San Diego-Tijuana border region. In 1980, Installation Gallery was opened in San Diego with a goal to present local and regional artists. In 1992, inSite was formed, replacing Installation Gallery. InSite has had five major versions: inSITE92, inSITE94, inSITE97, inSITE2000, and inSite_05.
