Public Art, Public Memory: Who’s Missing

The exhibition Public Art, Public Memory: Who’s Missing explores the role of public art in embodying public memory. It engages with contemporary discussion around expanding representation in our public monuments.

While public statues of men are plentiful in cities — statues of women who have made significant history are few and far between. And when statues of woman they exist, more often than not they are nameless, appearing as allegories, archetypes, symbols, muses, or metaphors.

In the wake of #metoo and other recent events, heightened awareness of gender inequity 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 together the work of three photographers, interpreting public statues of women in their respective cities — St. Louis, New York City and Paris.

This exhibition invites the audience to explore and experience these photographs to reflect on
