EXHIBITION WHO ARE YOU? WHEN On View:January 17, 2016 - March 13, 2016 WHERE The Port to Learning Gallery MORE INFO (562) 437-1689 GET TICKETS 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 Martínez 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 own 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.
