Ancient architecture explored

The Art, Design, and Architecture Museum at UC Santa Barbara presents the exhibit “The Stumbling Present: Ruins in Contemporary Art” which features contemporary art that explore the theme of ruins.

The show is curated by Elyse A. Gonzales, who chose works that specifically depict ruins, abandoned buildings, dystopic cityscapes, deserted homes, and the theme of decay.

“In ‘The Stumbling Present,’ I focused on themes of obsolescence and memory, failure, and transformation,” Gonzales said in a statement.

The exhibit features works from 10 contemporary artists who hail from across the globe. Some works will be installed specifically for this exhibition and will include mixed media, including found objects.

The Art, Design, and Architecture Museum at UCSB is open Wednesday through Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

A companion exhibit titled “Ruinophilia” features a collection of works from the museum’s permanent collection that deal with ruin and decay, showing through Dec. 16 at the Jane Deering Gallery, 128 E. Canon Perdido St., Santa Barbara, open Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
