September 15, 2019 @ 11:00 am - January 26, 2020 @ 5:00 pm$10
The Museum of Latin American Art (MOLAA) presents Memento: An Anthological Exhibition on display from Sunday, September 15, 2019 through Sunday, January 26, 2020.
Tomás Ochoa (Ecuador, b. 1969) is a South American artist whose work challenges established historical narratives. Since 2016, Ochoa has lived and worked in Colombia and studied the legacy of colonialism through economic development and political events. His images capture their effects on the local landscape and the experiences of the country’s most vulnerable inhabitants.
Antología Memento (Memento Anthology) presents sixteen large panels that depict Colombia’s landscape, architecture, and peoples. Ochoa rewrites Latin American history by highlighting the events that have literally shaped the jungles and buildings of the country. The works become an illustrated and updated timeline that joins Colombia’s present reality with its hidden past.
Wednesday, Friday through Sunday: 11:00am – 5:00pm
Thursday: 11:00am – 9:00pm
General admission is priced at $10. For more information, visit MOLAA’s website at www.molaa.org or call (562) 437-1689.
