(PAST) Memorials: Markers of Time?
Time & Location
About the Event
The Memorial Panels I and II are organized in collaboration with Professors Anya Belkina and Cher Krause Knight, inspired by their co-taught class Boston Memorials Revisited and Reimagined: Public Art and Virtual Modeling. Bringing together artists, activists, architects, urban planners, and scholars, this conversation centers around issues of memorial design and how our relationships to memorials can be understood and contextualized in terms of audience response.
This evening our panelists consider how time impacts public art. Are memorials meant to last "forever"? What happens when their values and ideals are no longer relevant to or welcomed by their audiences? How can memorial designers now address such concerns going forward?
