Event description

The talk is part of Monuments/AntiMonuments: Between Monuments and Community Engagement, a series of three seminars addressing the shifting historical meaning across different times and communities, including shifts in the relationship between the role of artistic value and what and who can or should be celebrated. 

Romi Crawford is professor of Visual and Critical Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her research and writing explore areas of race and ethnicity as these relate to American visual culture (including art, film, and photography). She regularly writes on contemporary art and is co-author of The Wall of Respect: Public Art and Black Liberation in 1960s Chicago and editor of Fleeting Monuments for the Wall of Respect

This event is co-presented by CCA@CCA and the History of Art and Visual Culture program. It is funded by an endowment gift to support The Deborah and Kenneth Novack Creative Citizens Series at CCA, an annual series of public programs focused on creative activism. The 2021–2022 Creative Citizens Series will focus on four pillars of the Communal Flower, a model for understanding communality in the ancient philosophy and daily practice of various Indigenous nations in southern Mexico: landcommunal responsibilityassembly and joy. This event explores assembly.
