The University Art Museum (UAM) at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) presents American MONUMENT by lauren woods, an exhibition that actively transforms the museum into a monument which examines the cultural conditions under which African-Americans have lost their lives to police violence. The work offers opportunities for valuable conversations and analyzes the complex relationship between the social construction of race, police violence, and systemic power.
