David Brownlee and Ken Lum | Monuments and Memory

Date/Time

Apr 17, 2019
05:00 PM until 06:30 PM

Description

The role of monuments and their representation of the past as it extends to the present has recently become a site of discussion, engagement, and conflict. Now that Philadelphia has become the first UNESCO World Heritage city, the meaning of monuments—to make, reflect, frame, and hide our city, its history, and its diversity—has become all the more important. How might we reimagine the monument to be more inclusive, more representative, and more meaningful to us all?
