Ambiguous Histories: Selected Works from the Exit Art Portfolios explores contemporary artists’ use of history through their references to traditional artistic processes and canonical works of art and architecture. This exhibition highlights a recent gift of works from Exit Art, a now closed alternative art space that provided a platform for multicultural or emerging artists to respond to critical and controversial contemporary issues. This exhibition has been curated by UCSB alum, Anna Muriello ’13.
