Museum Of London To Immortalise Baby Trump Balloon In Exhibition About Protest Art

Museum Of London To Immortalise Baby Trump Balloon In Exhibition About Protest Art

The Museum of London has acquired the rights to feature the iconic Baby Trump balloon in its exhibition on protest art.

The huge balloon took to the skies over England's capital back in 2018 when the US President visited the UK.

After a massive crowdfunding effort, the orange balloon was able to be built and flown during a public protest against Trump's arrival.

In the time since that huge moment, the balloon has since been flown in France, Argentina, Ireland and Denmark.

The Museum of London's director, Sharon Ament, said while it poked fun at a sitting world leader, it was important to immortalise the sentiment so people can understand it in the future.

"By collecting the baby blimp, we can mark the wave of feeling that washed over the city that day and capture a particular moment of resistance," Sharon said.

"From the Suffragettes of the early 20th century to the anti-austerity marches, free speech and Black Lives Matter most recently, the capital has always been the place to have your say."

The museum has been on the hunt to collect the item since it first debuted and it has taken three long years to get the right to show it in an exhibition.

The balloon is expected to be displayed in the MoL's new home in West Smithfield in 'the coming years'.

The team that organised the Baby Trump balloon have decided to hand over the reigns to the full-sized version, however will keep a half-sized one to fly at future protests.

They said in a statement: "While we're pleased that the Trump Baby can now be consigned to history along with the man himself, we're under no illusions that this is the end of the story.

"We hope the baby's place in the museum will stand as a reminder of when London stood against Trump - but will prompt those who see it to examine how they can continue the fight."

Donald Trump is gearing up for his final day in office after losing the November US election. He will not attend his successor's, Joe Biden's, inauguration tomorrow.
