Virtual Program: Monuments and Memorials: Visual Culture and Historical Traumas

Wednesday September 22, 2021 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Museum Educator Waleska Santiago-Centeno will present a lecture and discussion about public art that will focus attention on the intersection between visual culture and historical trauma.

The purpose of this presentation is to raise awareness and increase understanding about the sensitivities that advocate the removal, renaming, repositioning and appreciation of monuments and memorials around the world.

Santiago-Centeno will deconstruct the semiotics at the intersections between monuments and memorials, on the one hand, and history, culture, space, memory, manifest destiny, ideologies, and narratives on the other hand.
