Event description

Description

Please join us for the launch of American Monument by lauren woods. Unfolding between October 5, 2019 and February 8, 2020, woods is actively transforming the Beall Center into a participatory intermedia monument.

American Monument is process-oriented and nomadic, expanding as it moves around the country; the Beall Center installation is its first full iteration. The artwork provides a vehicle for analyzing the complex relationship between the construction of race, material violence, structural power, and monumentality itself.


We invite the public and the UCI campus community to take part in the co-creation of the monument by participating in the workshops, think-tanks, research working groups, and other programming during American Monument’s residence at the Beall. For more information and to receive monument updates and invitations visit www.beallcenter.uci.edu

American Monument is presented in collaboration with Kimberli Meyer and the Beall Center for Art and Technology. Public engagement is organized by Carol Zou. Research and think-tanking is supported by the UCI School of Law and The Center on Law, Equality and Race (CLEAR); and the departments of African American Studies, Social Ecology, Art History, and Art.

American Monument has been made possible by the generous support of the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts, a founding and continuing grantor to the artwork; the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; the University of California Humanities Research Institute; and the Beall Family Foundation.

Special thanks to community partner Grand Central Art Center, Santa Ana.
