Event Details

Lauren woods  is a conceptual artist whose interdisciplinary projects—film, video and sound installations, socially-engaged public interventions, and site-specific work—engage history and sociopolitical systems to critique structures of power. Her primary research traces racial histories in the built environment through monument/ memorial work.  Driving woods' critical and creative inquiry, is the question of how  best to translate the practice of traditional monument-making into new contemporary objects of public memory that serve the movement for racial and historical justice.
