Exhibition Highlights

Exhibition Details

Celebrated conceptual artist and pedagogue, Luis Camnitzer (b. 1937, Germany) presents a series of posters by more than 100 artists depicting proposals for monuments to under-recognized heroes. Originally organized in the days following the pandemic, this visual archive captures various perspectives on the ways in which we memorialize, while raising questions about the socio-political and economic underpinnings that typically accompany the production of public monuments.

Curated by

Amara Antilla, CAC Senior Curator at Large.
