2011 LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT

The year 2011 was an important one for MOLAA and for me personally as

I took the helm of this venerable institution in September. My first day coincided

with the inauguration of the MEX/LA exhibition, MOLAA’s contribution to the

Getty’s monumental Pacific Standard Time initiative.

Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945 - 1980 was a collaboration of more than

sixty cultural institutions across Southern California, coming together for

six months beginning in October 2011 to tell the story of the birth of the Los

Angeles art scene.

MEX/LA, which recognized the influence of Mexican artists on the LA art

scene, received recognition regionally and nationally with reviews in the Los

Angeles Times, New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.

Mex/LA began the trend of innovative exhibitions in 2011 that delighted the

public with a variety not seen before at MOLAA. Exhibits ranged from the high

tech Unresolved Circumstances: Video Art from Latin America, which explored

current and recurring issues in Latin America, to Mexico: Expected/Unexpected

with over 100 examples of contemporary Latin American art from the Isabel

and Agustín Coppel collection.

In addition to the outstanding traveling exhibitions, our permanent collection grew

as well, with important acquisitions of works by Sandra Ramos, Esterio Segura,

Camilo Ontiveros, Ingrid Hernández and Nereo Lópes Meza, to name a few.

Another highlight of 2011 was the two part symposium, Between Museum

and Practice: Rethinking Latin American Art in the 21st Century. Organized by

Long Beach Business Journal photo by Thomas McConville.

MOLAA, in collaboration with the Getty Research Institute and funded by the

Getty Foundation, the symposium was held in Los Angeles in March and Lima, Peru in November and provided a forum for international scholars, curators,

museum directors and artists to discuss new approaches to the study and presentation of Latin American art in the 21st century.

MOLAA continued to serve the community with Target Free Sundays, En La Noche and several new programs, including collaborations with the Long Beach

Opera and the Los Angeles Opera. MOLAA also hosted two great events, “Sabor Latino” and “Viva el Tequila” where guests enjoyed sampling Latin American

cuisine as well as over 40 varieties of Tequila.

In the summer we presented our “Murals under the Stars” series, skillfully crafted by Gregorio Luke with lectures on the lives and art of David Alfaro Siqueiros,

Diego Rivera and Jose Clemente Orozco.

The Education Department served over 4,000 school children through our school tours and art workshops program. This program, which fulfills the California

visual arts standards, not only provided valuable instruction to the students, but was also a source of revenue for the Museum.

MOLAA continues to grow as the landmark institution presenting modern and contemporary Latin American art in the United States. With our professional staff,

our committed volunteers, and the wisdom of our Board of Directors, we expect to see even greater success in the future.

With my warmest regards,

Stuart A. Ashman, President and C.E.O.

2011 EXHIBITION SCHEDULE

Boundaries: Selections from the MOLAA Permanent Collection

January 13 – July 3, 2011

Curator: Cecilia Fajardo-Hill

The exhibition was divided in three sections; opening with a selection of works by Roberto Matta

(Chile, 1911-2002). The second section introduced a two-channel digital video installation by Mexican

artist Gabriel de la Mora (Mexico, 1968), part of a series dealing with issues of personal identity within

the context of family and his Mexican heritage. The third and largest section included the work

of thirteen contemporary artists that addressed issues of boundaries, whether geographical, political,

ideological or cultural.

Benvenuto Chavajay, (Guatemala, b. 1978) Tiro al blanco / Target Shooting, 2008, Sandals, latex and acrylic on board, Gift of the artist, M.2009.039

PROJECT ROOM: Gabriel de la Mora, Frágil / Fragile

February 20 – July 3, 2011

Curator: Cecilia Fajardo-Hill

Gabriel de la Mora’s Project Room exhibition displayed his most recent works. The exhibition aimed to present

a dialectic relationship between figuration and abstraction, from autobiographical subject matter,

like portraits to examinations on the nature of the void and the whole. The exhibition did this while

unveiling the artist's unconventional and experimental explorations of painting, sculpture and drawing, with

works made from human hair, alphabet soup or burned papers that challenge the delicate line that

distinguishes a drawing from a sculpture.

Gabriel de la Mora, PQ, 2009, Paper and fire, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, Gift of Eugenio López

Mexico: Expected / Unexpected, Isabel and Agustín Coppel Collection

In collaboration with the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego(MCASD)

February 20 – May 15, 2011

Curators: Carlos Basualdo and Mónica Amor

Mexico: Expected / Unexpected presented more than 100 artworks selected from the Isabel and Agustín

Coppel Collection, one of Mexico’s most comprehensive contemporary art collections. The exhibition

destabilized categories typically associated with Mexico and with Mexican art. Mexico: Expected /

Unexpected proposed that Mexican contemporary art, like the global culture to which it responds, is

unstable, rich, complex, unpredictable and constantly shifting between tradition and innovation. The

exhibition was presented concurrently in MOLAA and MCASD.

Gabriel Orozco, Cuadro fértil, 2004, Acrilyc on canvas, Fundación CIAC

The Collaborative: A Project of The Arts Council For Long Beach and The Museum Of

Latin American Art, Defiant Chronicles

April 30 – July 24, 2011

Curators: Idurre Alonso (MOLAA) and Slanguage Founders Mario Ybarra Jr. and Karla Diaz.

This exhibition focused on current artistic production derived and influenced by urban and street art

including graffiti, stencils and stickers. It was comprised of two mixed multi media installations by artists

Acamonchi and Perl. The exhibition redefined the traditional approach to street art/graffiti as a practice

that is meant to be singled-out from its place and context and exclusive to an insider audience. It broke

the stereotype of urban art as a male dominated art form that rarely addresses gender issues in its content.

Perl/FDS Collective

Unresolved Circumstances: Video Art from Latin America

June 5 – August 28, 2011

Curators: Cecilia Fajardo-Hill and Idurre Alonso

The videos presented in Unresolved Circumstances explored past and present recurring issues in Latin America

that continuously shape a contradictory reality. Presented in three thematic axes—History, Location and

Politics—the works dealt with several global and local socio-political issues relating to Latin American history

such as colonialism and its effects, the contradictions of a dysfunctional modernity, gender issues,

corruption, violence, the war on drugs, forced disappearance and consumerism, among other themes.

PROJECT ROOM: Johanna Calle, Submergentes: A Drawing Approach on Masculinities

July 14, 2011 – January 8, 2012

Curator: Cecilia Fajardo-Hill

Johanna Calle experiments with different drawing formats and materials to produce drawings that

are conceptual in content and challenge our concept of what a drawing is, questioning the boundaries

between drawing and sculpture or drawing and writing. Her work explores the qualities of cursive

handwriting, different writing systems of transcription such as shorthand or stenography, and their

similarities with drawing techniques and aesthetics, to comment on social issues, utilizing sources such

as music and literature.

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly? Selections from the MOLAA Permanent Collection

July 14, 2011 – January 8, 2012

Curator: Gabriela Martínez, Associate Vice President of Education

This selection of works from MOLAA’s permanent collection, encouraged visitors to examine the way

that they make aesthetic judgments and the key factors that influence them in deciding whether a piece

of art is “good” or “bad.” Visitors were asked to make a value judgment on works in the exhibition and

then ask themselves why they made that decision. The exhibition examined principles of design, color,

styles and strategies artists use to communicate.

MEX/LA: “Mexican” Modernism(s) in Los Angeles 1930-1985

September 18, 2011 – February 5, 2012

Curators: Rubén Ortiz-Torres and Jesse Lerner

MEX/LA: “Mexican” Modernism(s) in Los Angeles 1930-1985 focused on the construction of different notions

of “Mexicanidad” within modernist and contemporary art created in Los Angeles. This is the place where

Siqueiros and Orozco made some of their first murals and their ideas and iconography created a series

of archetypes that often turned into stereotypes in popular culture, which throughout time have been

contested, appropriated and reclaimed. The purpose of this exhibition was to understand how nationalism

and internationalism are modernist constructions that are not necessarily exclusive but often complementary

and fundamental in the formation of Mexican, American, Chicano art and the art of the City.

The Collaborative: A Project of The Arts Council For Long Beach and The Museum Of

Latin American Art, Utopian City Project

October 29, 2011 – February 5, 2012

Curator: Idurre Alonso

Using Long Beach as a model, this exhibition proposed a new exercise in imagining the perfect city of

the future. Architect Giacomo Castagnola and urban planner James Rojas collaborated to create an

interactive model of Long Beach that allowed the visitors to propose their own ideas for the future of the

city. This project pushed the boundaries of the conventional architectural model, giving visitors the

opportunity to view the city conceptually as well as experience it physically through the senses.

SELECTED ACQUISITIONS TO THE MOLAA

PERMANENT COLLECTION 2011

NEREO LÓPEZ MEZA (Colombia, b. 1920) Keel of an Abandoned Boat, San Andrés Island, Colombia/Quilla de barco abandonado, Isla de San Andrés, Colombia, 1969/2011 (Detail)

GABRIEL DE LA MORA

(Mexico, b. 1968)

Catalogue of the Exhibition I, 2011

Light jet print, ed. 1/20, (+ 5 P.A.)

Gift of the artist and OMR Gallery, Mexico

M.2011.002

About these works de la Mora says, “In a series of

burnt papers I explored drawing using only a blank

sheet of paper and fire. The sheet of paper turned

from white to black and from a flat surface into an

irregular shape. In terms of conservation, ash is the

most stable material to the passing of time and the

fragility would allow something as ephemeral as

burning a piece of paper to become eternal.”

TANIA BRUGUERA

(Cuba, b. 1968)

Mouth with Nails (Untitled) / Boca con clavos

(Sin título), 2003

brown and grey ink drawing with washes on

woven-screen paper

Gift of Geoffrey Beaumont

M.2011.010

The iconography of the protruding nails is present

in Mouth with Nails (Untitled), in which the artist

traces her figure onto the paper (referencing Ana

Mendieta) and draws nails coming out of her body

and mouth, alluding to themes of devotion but also

censorship and torture in her native Cuba.

RAÚL CORDERO

(Cuba, b. 1971)

Too Early-Too Late / Demasiado

temprano-demasiado tarde, 2002

Two synchronized clocks with photographic faces

ed. 2/3

Gift of Geoffrey Beaumont

M.2011.022

Raúl Cordero’s works create a dialogue between

the medium and the idea. The piece presents two

photographs on the faces of synchronized clocks.

Inadvertently—or inevitably—the mechanic system

of the clocks makes them lose their synchrony and

therefore one of the clocks is either “too early” or

“too late” in relation to the other one.

FABIANA CRUZ

(Venezuela, b. 1984)

Parition Lineaire #4 – « PaintSynth », 2010

Video (1:54 min.) and print on acrylic, ed. 5/8

Gift of Alberto Gorodi

M.2011.011

Fabiana Cruz combines elements of music and

drawing to produce videos. In this series, she is

responsive to the music she is listening to. Partition

Linéaire #4: PaintSynth, 2010, for example, is double

video presented on the same screen, where the

artist marks repeatedly with colored chalk eight

different points (or drawings) on the surface,

emulating the rhythm of the musical score which

was composed by her.

SANDRA RAMOS (Cuba, b. 1969) Las olas cantaron anoche su poder, sólo encontré tres tablas de mi barca / The waves sang about their power last

night, I only found three planks of my boat, 1994. (Detail)

CARLOS GARAICOA

(Cuba, b. 1967)

Acerca de la Construcción de la Verdadera Torre de

Babel / On the Construction of the Real Tower of

Babel, 1996

Print and photo

ed. 10/15 and ed. 5 + 1 A/P

Gift of Geoffrey Beaumont

M.2011.012.a-b

This work is a comment on ruins and utopia, but is

also an example of the representation of landscape

based in a real place with the incorporation of

elements of the imagination. Garaicoa draws a critical

but sentimental architectural solution, which is

unfeasible and absurd next to the photograph of

urban space in ruins in Havana.

INGRID HERNÁNDEZ

(Mexico, b. 1974)

Diablitos, Tijuana, 2004

Digital print

ed. 7 +A/P

Gift of the artist

M.2011.014

Ingrid Hernández is interested in alternative modes

of living and subverting stereotypes of poverty by

focusing on domestic spaces—the place where

people project beliefs, desires and expectations.

Diablitos is part of the series Compressed Tijuana,

2005, in which Hernández studied the urban

growth of the settlement Colonia Nueva Esperanza

(New Hope) in Tijuana, by interviewing the residents

about family, migration and socioeconomic issues.

NEREO LÓPEZ MEZA

(Colombia, b. 1920)

Keel of an Abandoned Boat, San Andrés Island,

Colombia / Quilla de barco abandonado, Isla de San

Andrés, Colombia, 1969/2011

Digital print from original negative on paper

ed. 1/1 (printed especially for MOLAA)

Gift of the artist

M.2011.016

Nereo López was part of the “Grupo Barranquilla”

during the 1950s. Other artists, writers and intellectuals

such as Gabriel García Márquez were also a part

of it. López’s work has been primarily focused on

journalistic photography as well as more personal

work related to depictions of the rural life of Colombia

and the richness of its cultural heritage.

CAMILO ONTIVEROS

(Mexico, b. 1978)

Colchon III (from the series Deportables) /

Colchon III (de la serie Deportables), 2008

Mattress and rope

Gift of New Electronic World Security Inc.

M.2011.018

Camilo Ontiveros explores underground or alternative

economies, immigration issues and the economic

value of objects. The ropes in this work are

discarded in the U.S. and are used to refer to the

way these products are transported to Mexico and

then sold for a higher price. It shows the value

differences between the two countries.

SANDRA RAMOS

(Cuba, b. 1969)

Las olas cantaron anoche su poder, sólo encontré

tres tablas de mi barca / The waves sang about

their power last night, I only found three planks of

my boat, 1994.

Oil on canvas

Gift of Geoffrey Beaumont

M.2011.019

Sandra Ramos uses diverse techniques such as

printing, engraving and collage with digital photographs

that give her work a dream-like imagery. Her work

references Cuban themes of isolation, economy

and the desire to flee the island. This painting

depicts little boats and humans with the Cuban flag

as their wings, escaping the country.

ESTERIO SEGURA

(Cuba, b. 1970)

Fly Away/ Echar a volar, 2001

Oil and charcoal on canvas

Gift of Geoffrey Beaumont

M.2011.020

Esterio Segura uses planes as a recurrent motif

to represent the idea of flying as a metaphor of

freedom and the ideals of modernity. The work

poetically addresses Cuba’s isolation, constraint

and impotence against various forms of restrictions,

such as travel prohibition on the island and struggle

to communicate with the outside world.

2011 EVENT PROGRAMS / MOLAA MUSEUM STORE 2011 EDUCATION PROGRAMS

EN LA NOCHE

Every third Thursday of the month MOLAA had an

evening of music, art, film and dancing. Every En la Noche

kicked off with a DJ, complimentary spirit tasting and

docent led tours. Guests were then invited to enjoy live

performances by local artists and musicians.

An average of 128 guests attended each night.

MURALS UNDER THE STARS

These monumental outdoor multi-media presentations

returned for their 12th year to MOLAA. For 2011, Gregorio

Luke highlighted, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Diego Rivera and

Jose Clemente Orozco. Guests also had the opportunity

to enjoy shopping and dining from local vendors at the

pre-event mercado.

The three-part series had an audience of 1,563 guests.

CINE MOLAA

Cine MOLAA, a movie night, was presented once every

quarter. The program showcased documentaries followed

by a Q & A with the respective film director. In addition to

documentary screenings, it included cult classics and

contemporary titles such as: Ulama, Purgatorio, Julia’s

Eyes and Twenty Five Hundred & One. The program was

generously supported by the filmmakers, directors and

producers of each film.

The four-part series had an audience of 176 guests.

NIGHT IN

The Night In events provided an intimate cultural evening

that included dinner and a show. The evening was

designed to educate guests and provide them with a

complete authentic experience; a taste of the culture. In

2011 the focus was the gastronomy and performing arts

of the Caribbean and Latin America.

This two-part series had an audience of 184 guests.

OPERA CONCERTS

MOLAA had the pleasure of collaborating with Long

Beach Opera to present a special program as a prelude

to the Opera Medea. Our second opera collaboration was

in partnership with Hispanics for LA Opera. A zarzuela

concert performed by LA Opera’s Domingo-Thornton

young artists took place in May in commemoration of LA

Opera’s 25th anniversary.

The opera concerts were attended by 141 guests.

TASTINGS

Two spirit tastings took place in 2011, Sabor Latino and

Viva el Tequila. Sabor Latino featured over 30 varietals of

Latin American wines. The 9th edition of Viva el Tequila

showcased over 40 varieties of the Mexican agave

ranging from the bold Añejo to the mild blanco

This two-part series had an audience of 503 guests.

MUSEUM STORE

In 2011, the MOLAA Store celebrated Latin American countries through artisan trunk shows and chocolate

tastings and increased its presence at multiple outreach and Museum events. Select countries and

regions such as Panama and the Southern Cone were spotlighted each month to promote sales of

handicrafts, books and accessories.

The Store continued to feature a mix of contemporary and traditional Latin American products.

Jewelry continued to be the best-selling category. Jewelry designers such as Argentinean, Doris Viñas,

Creative Brazil and D'Escorcia were very popular with MOLAA’s visitors.

To reward MOLAA shoppers, a new rewards program ‘Passport to the Arts’ was implemented to

incentivize shoppers to spend more. For every $40 spent, shoppers receive a stamp in their

“passport” and with the tenth stamp the customer received a one-time 50% off coupon.

In 2011, the Education Department offered two free programs as well as a number of programs paid for

by participants. Paid programs included School Tours and Art Workshops, Summer Art Camp, The ART LAB,

and Buen Provecho. They brought in over $34,000 in revenue, excluding individual donations and grants from

corporate and governmental agencies and foundations. In addition, the Education Department collaborated

with the Exhibitions department in the production of an exhibition, lectures and interpretive materials.

DIDACTIC INFORMATION AND EXHIBITIONS

A grant from Verizon Wireless provided funding to produce bilingual

Activity Guides for each of 2011’s temporary exhibitions. Activity Guides

included additional information on the exhibitions, interactive gallery

activities, an online activity, plus QR Code links to activities and the

MOLAA website. The Education Department assisted the Exhibitions

Department in writing and editing exhibition didactics (labels, wall text)

and established Education Stations in the Permanent Collection. The

Good, the Bad and the Ugly?: Selections from MOLAA’s Permanent

Collection was the first permanent collection rotation to include Education

Stations and was curated by the Education Department.

LECTURE PROGRAMS

In collaboration with the Exhibitions Department, the Education

Department produced 11 Art Ch@t lectures. Art Ch@t was a free public

program where local and international scholars were invited to discuss

trends in modern and contemporary art with MOLAA curators and

exhibition artists. Panel discussions, also free to the public, were

produced for each of the temporary exhibitions in 2011.

TARGET FREE SUNDAYS @MOLAA

Target Free Sundays occurred on the third Sunday of each month.

Programming included workshops and tours of the galleries. Six

Sundays were dedicated to festivals and one to the Poster Contest.

Festivals featured tours, workshops, live performances, storytelling, lectures,

panel discussions and food and crafts vendors. On average, festival

attendance grew by 25%. Dia de los Muertos drew over 1,700 visitors—

growing 30% from 2010. The Poster Contest exhibited 90 posters by

local middle and high school students.

SCHOOL TOURS & WORKSHOPS

Tours and workshops were designed to fulfill California Visual Arts

Standards and included a hands-on component taught by a teaching

artist. There were 4,120 students who participated in School Tours and

Workshops in 2011. Ten tour/workshop scholarship packages were

provided in 2011, sponsored primarily through a grant from Verizon

Wireless, who also provided transportation funding to high schools that

qualified. Three hundred students from Long Beach, Orange County, Los

Angeles and Inland Empire school districts received complimentary

admission to the Museum.

SUMMER ART CAMP

In 2011, an average of 31 campers per week enrolled in Summer Art

Camp, a dual-immersion, interdisciplinary arts camp. MOLAA’s Summer

Art Camp featured fine arts, culinary arts, martial arts, ballet folklorico

and theatre workshops, in addition to weekly field trips to El Dorado Park.

Workshops were taught by local artists with the support of 20 teen

counselors from our student volunteer program. Nearly 18% of campers

attend the Summer Art Camp through MOLAA's scholarship program.

WORKSHOPS FOR ADULTS

The ART LAB offered adults the opportunity to work with local artists

in an intimate setting. In 2011, six workshops that explored printmaking,

painting, collage, jewelry and book making were offered. Buen Provecho

was a series of gastronomy workshops where participants worked

hands-on with a professional chef. Working collaboratively, students and

instructors created time-honored dishes like tamales and mole, as well as

contemporary versions of traditional favorites.
