Event description

Description

The role of monuments and their representation of the past as it extends to the present has recently become a site of discussion, engagement, and conflict. Now that Philadelphia has become the first UNESCO World Heritage city, the meaning of monuments—to make, reflect, frame, and hide our city, its history, and its diversity—has become all the more important. David Brownlee (Art History, Penn) and Ken Lum (Fine Arts, Penn) will talk about how we might reimagine the monument to be more inclusive, more representative, and more meaningful to us all.

ASL Interpretation will be provided. If you have any accessibility questions or concerns, please email us.

Free and open to the public. Pre-registration requested.

Presented in association with the 2018 DesignPhiladelphia Festival.
