Event Description

Artist and publisher Kris Graves features images of Civil War monuments re-envisioned in the context of the Black Lives Matter protests in his seminal project American Monuments. He posits the questions: How have artists and photographers grappled with the momentous protests of the past year? How can we think about changes to historical monuments as a form of reimagining rather than destruction?

In this conversation with curator LeRonn Brooks, Graves discusses his experience photographing monuments over the past year as it relates to his practice of creating art that confronts societal problems. This program is presented in relation to the exhibition In Focus: Protest on view through October 10, 2021.
