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 Sharon Hayes and Karyn Olivier, at work on projects in Rittenhouse Square and Vernon Park, will take part in a public conversation, moderated by Monument Lab curator Paul M. Farber. Sharon Hayes’ project calls attention to the absence of women in Philadelphia’s monuments, while Karyn Olivier’s work turns a preexisting monument into a reflection of ever-shifting human moments.
