Gabriela León: Sunday Walk to the Zócalo of Oaxaca
January 29 - March 8, 2008
Opening Reception: Tuesday, January 29, 4:30-6pm, Sesnon Gallery
Artist Talk: Tuesday, January 29, 6:00-7:30pm, Oakes Acad 105

This exhibition is a multi-media artistic response to the popular revolt and resistance that unfolded in Oaxaca in 2006 and the first traveling solo exhibition outside of Mexico for artist Gabriela León. Some of the elements of the exhibition will consist of a "barricade dress" made of barbed-wire, tire treads and mattress springs found amidst the detritus; a video projection of the artist wearing the dress walking among protestors and police; a sound installation that evokes the voices of the crowds; and tarps inspired by the temporary living structures during the lengthy protest. A bilingual catalogue is available for purchase. Major support for the exhibition comes from the University of California Institute for Mexico and the United States (UC Mexus) and artbeam. The exhibition was organized by UC Riverside Sweeney Art Gallery and curated by director Tyler Stallings. Additional support was made possible by the Charles Griffin Farr Fund.

Please see our Web site http://arts.ucsc.edu/sesnon/ for upcoming events, exhibitions and lectures. The Sesnon Gallery encourages interdisciplinary discourse through the lens of the arts. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday noon to 5:00PM. The gallery is located at Porter College, University of California, Santa Cruz and is wheelchair accessible. Admission is free and parking is free on Saturdays. For further information please call 831/459-3606.
