MOLAAc poster for Who Are YouMuseum of Latin American Art

January 17- March 13, 2016

Opening Reception: Sunday, January 17, 2016 1-4pm

The Port to Learning’s inaugural exhibition Who Are You?, presents works by fourteen local artists in dialogue with pieces from MOLAA’s Permanent Collection. Curated by Gabriela Martinez with Nalini Elias, Who Are You? explores the way that we choose to express aspects of our identities through language, clothing, traditions, our diet and our bodies. With over 30 paintings, prints, photographs and sculptures, this exhibition focuses on how artists play with, manipulate and struggle with the various categories that make up our identities while creating a rich visual environment where visitors can reflect on how they transmit or conceal who they are.


This exhibition includes works by CSULB faculty, current MFA students and CSULB alumni.


Artists Include: Benvenuto Chavajay, Carlos Garaicoa, Cintia Alejandra Segovia, Craig Cree Stone, Diane Linquata, Doris Salcedo, Gazelle Samizay, Ja’Rie Gray, Kimberly Morris, Maria Galaviz Arroyo, Maria Guadalupe, Miguel Alvear, Myriam Gurba, Nahum Zenil, Norax Ayala, Sergio Paniagua, Sheila Garrett Rodriguez, Shuai Fu, Sir Oliver Kirsch, Veronica Riedel






Program Focus: Fiber

Posted on December 6, 2015 by Rebecca

Fiber1bProgram Head (Diedrick Brackens) The Fiber program at CSULB was started more than forty years ago and has one of the most thorough curriculum offerings in the country. We see fiber-based art as a broad, contemporary, and cross-disciplinary practice. Students receive comprehensive knowledge of approaches to textiles including hand construction, loom woven and computer-aided structure, both printed and dyed surface design, book arts, paper-making, and fiber sculpture. We encourage a mixed media approach based on the value of fiber’s unique place within a historical and contemporary worldview. The Fiber program encourages students to develop a personal vision by encouraging eclecticism, risk taking and awareness of new forms of artistic expression. For more info: Photo by Isabel Avila
