2 pm—3:30 pm
Tickets $20


The Broad presents “This Is Not America’s Flag: A Conversation on the U.S. Flag, National Identity, and Citizenship with Wendy Red Star, Apsáalooke + Tony de los Reyes + Stephanie Syjuco + Sarah Loyer” on the opening weekend of the special exhibition This Is Not America’s Flag. The Broad’s Curator and Exhibitions Manager Sarah Loyer will moderate a conversation among exhibiting artists Wendy Red Star, Stephanie Syjuco, and Tony de los Reyes.

Taking up key themes in the exhibition, panelists will discuss their use of the United States flag in their artworks and the flag as a symbol of individual and national identity. The discussion will examine the flag’s simultaneous unifying and polarizing qualities as well as key historical and legislative touchpoints. Artists will speak to the engagement of history in their works, and what that might mean for the present and future.
