‘Public Art Public Memory: Who Is Missing’

Saturday 28th @ 2:00pm | Renowned sculptor Harry Weber

This exhibition Public Art, Public Memory: Who Is Missing explores the role of public art in embodying public memory… in the wake of #metoo movement and recent events, heightened awareness of gender inequality and power imbalance have become part of the political and design discourse. Grassroots advocacy has gained momentum, motivating civic leaders to take action. The exhibition brings the work of three local photographers, interpreting public statues of women in their respective cities —St Louis, New York, Paris. The exhibition on items the audience to explore and experience these photographs to reflect on the impact of representation and collective memory in public art. We hope they will inspire thoughts about value of diversity and about who is missing? Curators Jasmin Aber, Rick Bell, Maeve Elder
