Under the theme of 'Lucky Number Seven', the 7th SITE Santa Fe Biennial aims to create an intimate, rigorous, yet playful exhibition that connects audiences to a spirit of discovery and learning. The artists featured in this Biennial are all emerging practitioners, ranging in age from their twenties through their sixties. All of the works for exhibition are site-inspired commissions that do not exist as works of art beyond the exhibition, with the majority of the materials being recycled back into the community. This element emphasizes temporality and process, and provides the artists with the opportunity to push their practices into new directions. 

The exhibition catalogue for 'Lucky Number Seven' is meant to be an extension of the Biennial, rather than a document. Lance M. Fung has always viewed the collaborative work of the artists as the real 'art' and the works being created for the Biennial as the byproduct of their experience, or as artifact. Consequently, the artists' section in the catalogue consists of pages designed by the actual artists instead of being conceived around them accompanied with the standard biographical material. In fact, some of these contributions may in and of themselves be considered as artworks designed around the concepts of 'Lucky Number Seven'.
