Revising the Archive: Arts of Africa, Oceania, and Native North America

Revising the Archive: Arts of Africa, Oceania, and Native North America

The works featured in this exhibition are part of an ongoing collaboration this Spring with UC Santa Barbara’s Library, Art, Design & Architecture Museum, and the 6E Survey offered through the Department of the History of Art and Architecture. Students enrolled in this course are working to revise the museum labels you see on display by providing historical context about the different ways in which these objects have been used over time by varying communities—from their original social function to their current storage in our museum collection. The goal of this project is to critically reframe the narration of these works for the Museum’s digital database.

Location: Art & Architecture Collection
