In this exhibition, the Williamson focuses on the works of three Mexican women photographers who explore and transform notions of Mexican identity in images that range from the documentary to the poetic.

Revolution and Ritual is part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. Supported by grants from the Getty Foundation, Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA takes place from September 2017 through January 2018 at more than 70 cultural institutions across Southern California, from Los Angeles to Palm Springs, and from San Diego to Santa Barbara.

January 20 – April 8, 2018
Opening: January 20, 2018, 7 to 9 pm, Williamson Gallery
Lecture: January 20, 4 to 5 pm, Humanities Auditorium

The Scripps College Ceramic Annual opens for its 74th consecutive year on Saturday, January 20th, 2018. Patsy Cox, professor of Visual Art, California State University, Northridge, is the guest curator. She describes the exhibition as a “celebration of ceramic work that embraces cultures and backgrounds manifested in clay offering viewers a journey through a significantly broad spectrum and a myriad of influences. This work significantly embraces human intellectual achievements to culminate in an exhibition that is an ethnological experience of the rich and diverse perspective of contemporary artists.” Those artists include Jennifer Datchuck, Christina Erives, Steven Young Lee, Roberto Lugo, Kyungmin Park, Zemer Peled, and Roxanne Swentzel. The exhibition is accompanied by a full-color catalog with an essay by Namita Gupta Wiggers, American crafts curator and writer.
