lauren woods: Monument

September 17  December 9, 2018 

The University Art Museum (UAM) at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) is presenting a major artwork by artist lauren woods, to be “unveiled” in September 2018. The artist will transform the museum into a monument that prompts consideration of the cultural circumstances under which African-Americans have lost their lives to police brutality. The new-media monument provides a vehicle by which to analyze the complex relationship between constructed race, material violence and structural power.

Funding for this exhibition has been provided by the Mike Kelley Foundation. 

Lauren woods is a conceptual artist whose hybrid media projects—film, video and sound installations, public interventions and site-specific work—engage history as a lens by which to view the socio-politics of the present. Challenging the tradition of documentary/ethnography as objective, she creates ethno-fictive documents that investigate invisible dynamics in society, remixing memory and imagining other possibilities. She also explores how traditional monument-making can be translated into new contemporary models of commemoration with new media.
