Public Art & Contemporary Narratives

Free Live Webinar
Tuesday, July 14, 2020
2:00 - 3:15 PM ET


How does public art address inequity and incorrigible narratives? Considering the current crisis and institutional and systemic racism, what are ways that trauma, heroes, and history can be reconsidered and recontextualized through public monuments? Join this webinar, featuring Brooke Kamin Rapaport, Deputy Director and Martin Friedman Chief Curator at Madison Square Park Conservancy in conversation with artist Krzysztof Wodiczko, whose site-specific public art projection Monument encouraged visitors to the Park to examine how history is memorialized. This program is organized and presented in collaboration with the Madison Square Park Conservancy.
