I commissioned 8 artists to design a flag as a reaction against the political climate in this country. Each flag representative of ideals each artist believes in, and that they feel are being threatened by the current administration. Made in collaboration with the Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles.

The Ace Hotel In New York commissioned Maria Candanoza to do an installation for the “Annex” space in their Lobby.

11 different artists were asked to pick an object they considered an “Icon” to be casted and converted into candles by Candanoza.

There was a candle burning ceremony at the closing party for the exhibition.
