UNIQUE MULTIPLES MÚLTIPLES ÚNICOS: Teaching with the Parkett Collection from the University of Castilla-La Mancha is co-curated by Shelby Graham, director of the Sesnon Gallery, and Enrique Leal, assistant professor, print media, at UC Santa Cruz. This exhibition will feature approximately 60 selected works, including Ai Weiwei, Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, William Kentridge, Kara Walker  and others, that make up the Parkett Collection* housed at the School of Fine Arts, University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM), Contemporary Art Archives and Collections, located in Cuenca, Spain.

*Parkett describes itself as a small museum and a large library on contemporary art. It was a literary arts journal (1984-2017) presenting the work of prominent international artists, with essays by writers and critics, that commissioned artists featured in the publication to create a work of art specifically for Parkett, produced in limited edition, signed, numbered and offered for purchase to subscribers

In Conjunction with Unique Multiples, for First Friday, we will give student-led guided tours from 12-5pm.
