This Saturday, December 14, Associate Professor and Chair Tom McDonough will participate in a symposium titled “Monuments, Monumentality, Monumentalization” at Dia:Chelsea. The symposium, which also includes Svetlana Boym and David Graeber, is part of Dia’s ongoing involvement in projects that present a critical monumentality, including Thomas Hirschhorn’s Gramsci Monument (July – September 2013) and the upcoming retrospective Carl Andre: Sculpture as Place, 1958-2010 (to open May 2014). From Dia’s website:

From Los Angeles to Hong Kong, from Dubai to Moscow, a proliferation of monuments accompanies the growth of our globalized world. As contemporary urban spaces become increasingly connected, and private and public spheres conflate in intricate fashions, monuments appear to be more than simple markers of historical awareness. Today’s monuments indicate institutional contexts of influence and commemoration, but they can also emerge as temporary manifestations of dissent and resistance. Gathering some of the most remarkable critical voices of the moment, this first symposium will examine these contexts and the strategic roles monuments play within them.
