Event description
Community Flag of Diversity & Unity

About this Event

Meet LUX Art Institute's Artists in Residence Chiachio & Giannone and help them create a community flag by dropping off your textiles.  The Argentinean couple are in San Diego for two months and one of the projects they are working needs your help.  They are asking the community to help create a symbol of unity and diversity by donating textiles, pillowcases, tablecloths, napkins and any other fabrics. These donated fabrics will be used as a surface to incorporate sewn messages from the Chicano, LGBTIQ and the community in general. The final assembly of the flag will be completed at Lux, where we invite you to see the final result as well as the amazing tapestries of Chiachio & Giannone currently on display.

Chiachio & Gianonne’s textile mosaics reference LGBTQ artists and their legacy in Latin America. Chiachio & Giannone recently completed a residency at the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach, CA and have shown at Chamber Gallery, New York, NY; Bernice Steinbaum Gallery, Miami, FL; the Boston Center for the Arts, Boston, MA; and the Maryland Institute College of Art, Baltimore, MD. They have also shown extensively all over the world, including Argentina, China, France, Italy, Mexico, the Philippines, United Kingdom, and the Netherlands.

The Studio Door is proud to be working with the artists and LUX Art Institute on this special project.
