American Monument to open at the University of California Irvine

American Monument, an exhibition by artist lauren woods about the brutality African-Americans face from the police, will run from October 5, 2019 to February 8, 2020 at the University of California Irving’s Beall Center for Art + Technology. After closing, the exhibition, “nomadic and continually expanding” will be “‘unveiled’ at universities, museums, storefronts, community centers, and churches” across the United States. To stay updated on the exhibition, you can sign up for the mailing list here.

This exhibition reopens after a year of being on pause at Cal State Long Beach’s Carolyn Campagna Kleefeld Contemporary Art Museum, by request of the artist, and due to controversy over former director Kimberli Meyer’s dismissal days after the exhibition opened initially.
