Artist-in-Residence: Fran Siegel, Translocation and Overlay

Event Date: 

Saturday, October 19, 2013 - 12:00am to Saturday, April 19, 2014 - 12:00am

As an artist-in-residence, Fran Siegel has developed an innovative drawing project that examines the landscape, history and current state of the Santa Barbara region. Through 50 unique drawings and related porcelain components, Siegel visually deconstructs the city. Her drawings, based on typical and atypical data sets from different time periods are related to items such as topography, rock distributions, population dispersals, migratory pathways and the location of swimming pools. Her installation will construct an alternate, imaginary version of Santa Barbara that collapses time and space but is also built on the use of real data. This exhibition has been curated by Elyse A. Gonzales, Curator of Exhibitions.
