Featured artists include:
Rebecca Belmore Nate Lewis
Cassils Jeffrey Meris
Nick Cave Paper Monuments
Nona Faustine Paul Ramirez Jonas
Doreen Garner Lee Mixashawn Rozie
Xandra Ibarra Marisa Williamson
Curated by Sarah Fritchey.
This exhibition considers the roles artists play in monument removal and making– as storytellers who unearth the histories and meanings of existing monuments, activists who participate in direct actions that lead to monument removal, and civic designers who work with government officials to envision new processes for including everyday people in monument-making.
As a whole, the featured artworks and projects reject a top-down approach, consider who and what we remember, and what places, events, and movements matter.
Add your voice. We want your ideas to be part of this exhibition. More information HERE
