January 19 - January 23
In order to commemorate local and international LGBTQ+ communities around the world, The Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) is presenting an installation about diversity and pride in collaboration with world-known Argentinian artists Leo Chiachio and Daniel Giannone. The 112 ft. long textile installation was created by the artists in collaboration with more than 3,000 members of the Long Beach and Los Angeles communities during the artists’ MOLAA residency between March and May of 2019. Visitors and community members were invited to contribute their own messages about the meaning of diversity and acceptance to the banner, before it was carried by over 100 volunteers at the Long Beach Pride Parade in July 2019. The Museum highlights underrepresented voices in Latin America, the US and around the world. This installation represents the commitment of MOLAA towards the values of diversity and inclusion for all.
