Talk: Reimagining Monuments
Thursday, November 5, 6 pm, Free on Facebook Live
On the opening weekend of The Long Dream, a panel of Chicago artists featured in the exhibition including Tonika Johnson, Max Guy, and Chris Pappan discuss monuments as symbolic and physical manifestation of ideologies, values, and narratives of those in power within society. During this conversation, the artists reckon with alternative ways to confront and commemorate our shared histories in public space, and the symbols Chicagoans need to uplift today.
