The 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill is frequently cited as a catalyst for the birth of the modern environmental movement. This exhibition, which is curated by librarians Kristen LaBonte and Annie Platoff, will examine the connections between this historic disaster and environmental activism in the local area.
Ocean Gallery, UCSB Library, UC Santa Barbara
This new work by Rose Briccetti was created as a companion to the UCSB Library exhibition Anguish, Anger, and Activism: Legacies of the 1969 Santa Barbara Oil Spill.
Oil Slick collects and collages images of--often petroleum based--consumer goods with the popular iridescent finish known as "oil slick." Though visually beautiful, the oil slick finish refers to pollution and environmental disaster. The images together create a work that explores themes of consumerism, our continued addiction to oil, and beauty in tragedy.
