Join the Menil for a live, online program with artist Ken Lum, organized in conjunction with Dream Monuments: Drawings in the 1960s and 1970s
, on view at the Menil Drawing Institute
until September 19, 2021. Lum will discuss the key themes of the exhibition—monuments, scale, and how artists redefined both terms during the era—through the lens of his personal art practice and work as a co-founder of Monument Lab, a public art and history studio that raises critical questions about the past, present, and future of monuments. He is joined by Dream Monuments
cocurators Erica DiBenedetto and Kelly Montana for a conversation that will reflect on select drawings from the exhibition alongside current debates about the status of the monument.
