Monuments and Memory Culture in the Bay Area
May 11 @ 6:30 PM PDT
One of the most heated public debates splashes art and the work of artists across our nation’s front pages. As long-standing statues become the subjects of protest and action, and monuments’ pedestals are vacated—at times involuntarily—around the world, artists and activists are called to explore the difference between monuments and public art. How can we elevate non-traditional monuments? Who gets to control the narrative and how do BIPOC artists choose to memorialize their past?
Join the Museum of the African Diaspora and the Goethe-Institut San Francisco for a conversation featuring esteemed changemakers Morning Star Gali, Jeffrey Yip, and Dana King, that tackles some of the most widely debated questions in contemporary memory culture. The conversation will be moderated by Anna Lisa Escobedo of the New Monuments Taskforce.
