Reckoning: Monuments and Racial History

Organized by


Event description

RSVP Here!

To mark the fifth anniversary of the founding of the Black Lives Matter movement and the closing of the SFMOMA exhibition Nothing Stable Under Heaven, the California College of the Arts (CCA) and SFMOMA jointly present a one-day symposium that explores the roles of art and architecture in bringing to light histories of racial violence, systematic oppression, and anti-racist movements. As the nation collectively comes to terms with its long history of racial violence and struggle, how can makers of monuments, photographs, sculptures, and other designed objects negotiate and make visible these racial histories? Participants include artists and designers, as well as art and architectural historians who have studied memorials, trauma, and monument-building.
