The Studies (Untitled Flags) Exhibition 2024 WeHo Pride Arts Festival

Ruben Esparza's Untitled (flag) series challenges the symbolic meaning of the American flag and questions the social and political history that has made it so recognizable across the globe today. A symbol of the American dream for some and capitalist imperialism for others, the history of the American flag is fraught and complicated.


In choosing to construct his flags out of familiar utilitarian materials, table clothes, cardboard, and cast-off remnants of cloth (a nod to Rasquashismo and ready-made art) that speaks of his Chicanidad and queer identity. Esparza is the founder and director of the Queer Biennial and Queer Califas.


This in-person event is part of the City of West Hollywood’s 2024 WeHo Pride Arts Festival.
