A monumental project is bound to lead to monumental conversations. In this four-part event series, Monument Lab artists join forces for talks about the role of the artist in relation to monument-making, as well as thoughts on meaning, memory, representation, equity, and dialogue in public space. Artists Kara Crombie, Alexander Rosenberg, and Ricardo Rivera of Klip Collective, with projects at Franklin Square, Rittenhouse Square, and Marconi Plaza, will take part in a public conversation about the exhibition and their work. Crombie’s Sample Philly is a monument to Philadelphia’s musical history, while Rosenberg’s The Built/Unbuilt Square reveals historic landscapes. At Marconi Plaza, Klip Collective’s one-night-only installation on October 28 will pay homage to immigrant families of South Philadelphia, past and present. FREE.
