On this show, we spoke with Shelby Graham about the current Mary Porter Sesnon Art Gallery Exhibition Eduardo Carrillo: Comunidad de Califas.
This Virtual Exhibition is happening February 3–April 3, 2021 and showcases the breadth of Eduardo Carrillo’s work, spanning from his early career after his studies at UCLA to his later life living in Santa Cruz. It has a comprehensive sample of his work in oil and watercolor mediums. Also included in this exhibition are works by Califas Legacy artists: Amalia Mesa-Bains, Ralph D’Oliveira, Carmen León, and Felicia Rice. Their pieces are displayed in conversation with works by Carrillo.
There quite a few events associated with this exhibition including a virtual Sesnon Gallery 3D tour as well as a Sesnon Speak Up event.
The Sesnon Gallery Speak Up Series aims to provide a safe space for students and the UC Santa Cruz community to engage with ideas generated from exhibitions particularly around social justice and creating anti-racist communities.
The Sesnon Speak Up: Community Resistance Against Erasure event is happening February 17, 2021, 5-6 pm. Register and join the conversation with guest artists Irene Juárez O’Connell and Victor Cervantes and hear about their community-centered art practice, activism, and continued resistance against cultural erasure. This is free and open to the public.
