Iman Djouini and Jonathan Taube

Iman Djouini and Jonathan Taube’s work of art, the Light Elephant, has traveled throughout downtown Santa Barbara in a new public art installation from the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara. 

The Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara will host a joint talk with Iman Djouini, a teaching professor at UCSB, and Jonathan Taube, an architectural designer and lecturer at UCSB, whose artwork, the Light Elephant, has been traveling throughout downtown Santa Barbara this summer and fall. 

The two have been creating work in public spaces together for the past decade, and have conducted research in Avignon, France, Rotterdam, Netherlands, Israel, New Orleans and more. 

The project was also facilitated through the Santa Barbara Office of Arts and Cultures and the Santa Barbara Central Branch Library. 

The piece will be on view at MCASB from Sept. 23 to Oct. 3. A reception celebrating the piece will be held on Sept. 30, between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.
