Engaging with the global dialogues confronting colonialist and racist monuments, markers and memorials in public space, Marking Monuments presents a selection of artists’ installations and interventions that challenge, erase and transform dominant histories, offering reimagined representations for equity in public culture. Marking Monuments includes projects by Ariel René Jackson, Joiri Minaya, Karyn Olivier in collaboration with Trapeta B. Mayson, John Sims, and Monument Lab. Marking Monuments is curated by Sarah Howard, USF Curator of Public Art and Social Practice; and organized by the USF Contemporary Art Museum.
Marking Monuments is made possible by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Stanton Storer Embrace the Arts Foundation, IRA Initiatives for Social Justice Fund, USFCAM Art for Community Engagement (ACE) Fund, the Lee and Victor Leavengood Endowment, and the Florida Department of State.
