Site to be Seen: Concepts for and from the Superfund is an artist project in reponse to an 11-acre Superfund Site on the Delaware river. The Site was once the site of a scrap metal and transformer salvage facility where for years soil and groundwater were contaminated through the release of residual oils and heavy metals, rendering the land unusable. It sits adjacent to RAIR, an artist residency housed in an active demolition recycling center.

As part of the project, a group of interdisciplinary artists, curators, and other practitioners were invited to be ‘Site Respondents’ and produce original printed ‘Site Responses.’ Addressing concepts of remediation and sustainability inspired by the Superfund Site, these newsprint Site Response broadsides creatively explore our collective relationship to maintenance, preservation and remediation of contaminated land, and will be made available to the public in the Fall of 2021.
