New Monuments for New Cities

The artists in the exhibition have designed monuments, both possible and impossible to build, that question the format itself and envision its future. They span from proposals for traditional monuments, to revised historical statues, to newly imagined methods of public commemoration. These 25 artworks address questions around permanence, representation, public space and land ownership, and the writing and re-writing of history.

The 606 runs along the Bloomingdale Trail (1800N) for 2.7 miles between Ashland (1600W) and Ridgeway (3750W). Damen Arts Plaza and the Humboldt Overlook both have galleries, additionally.
