Refreshments will be served.Relevant historical objects or relic of the past?Recent confrontations over memorials have highlighted the true nature of monuments as acts of power. Proposals to take down, modify, or replace these statues confirm that monuments are as much about the present as they are about the past. But, what is the best way to address these historical objects?The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) and the University of Chicago invite you to a roundtable discussion to investigate how public life is tangled up with the histories of public art.
