[in]SITES Series

[in]SITES is a new site-specific performance series presented by Public Energy, Artspace, the Art Gallery of Peterborough and ReFrame Film Festival. The goal of [in]SITES is to open up dialogues around the relationship between performance, site, and contemporary art practices.

[in]SITES will foster deep curiosity in individuals and communities and their relationship to it.

[in]SITES will create opportunities for multidisciplinary artists working with site-responsive
contemporary art practices.

What We Do
[in]SITES is a collaboration between the Art Gallery of Peterborough, Artspace, and Public
Energy. It is a month-long annual series which features work by artists who challenge histories,
structures, and particularities of place via site-responsive contemporary art practices.

● We value partnerships and collaboration and sharing resources between arts and
community organizations.
