Save the Date! Summer 2013 Exhibitions Opening Reception --7/12 5:30 - 7:30 pm
Posted: 7/2/13
Come and enjoy an opening reception for 3 new exhibitions at the Art, Design, and Architecture Museum: Peake/Picasso, Goya: Disasters of War, and Unbuilt UCSB.

Peake/Picasso looks at the unique friendship between two artists: Channing Peake (1910–1989) and Pablo Picasso (1881–1973). Through photographs, prints, sculptures, drawings, paintings and ephemera from the 1940s–60s the exhibition will examine similarities in their artistic practices and lay bare their playful camaraderie. Their shared love of abstraction and an interest in the American west served as an important lynchpin in their relationship.

Y no hay remedio: Francisco Goya’s Disasters of War: The University of California San Diego has lent the print series, a gift of Robert and Karen Hoehn, for the exhibition. Goya completed the eighty etchings in the series from 1810 to 1823, in different printing techniques including engraving and drypoint. While most of the prints were made during the Napoleonic occupation of Spain and the subsequent decade, the images were published thirty years after Goya’s death, likely because of their controversial anti-war subjects. The first forty-seven prints represent gruesome war atrocities, while the second group of seventeen prints includes scenes of famine. Goya’s famous Caprichos, allegorical images that criticize the restored Spanish monarchy, make up the final fifteen prints. In Disasters of War, Goya’s meditative focus on each bleak tableau expresses his disillusionment with the evolution of Enlightenment values after the foreign occupation of his country, while remaining the highly personal and intimate records of a witness to violence.

“Unbuilt UCSB” displays architectural designs created for the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB) campus, which were never constructed or have yet to be completed. Organized by Tara Kopp ’13, political science and art history undergraduate.
