About the Exhibition

Unsettling California is a student-curated art exhibition and justice-oriented educational program focused on race and migration in California, which builds on our Mellon Sawyer Seminar. The Summer Sessions 2022 programming has culminated in an exhibition OPEN NOW in the Art Department’s Glass Box Gallery featuring works by contemporary California artists whose practices question the persistent presence of colonial ideologies, structures, and policies that have shaped migration, citizenship, inclusion, exclusion, and the racial formations of the State.

Alongside the art exhibition, we hosted a series of dialogue-building events including a panel discussion and a skill-building workshop on justice- and action-oriented art. Check out details about each event and the exhibition below. 

If you’re an undergraduate at UCSB, consider submitting your own original artwork to be featured in a virtual gallery.  More information below.
