Monuments as History / Art / Power
June 13 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Graduate Center, CUNY
Martin E. Segal Theatre (Ground Floor)
Historians, art historians, community activists, and artists discuss the ongoing reevaluation of public monuments in New York City and across the country. This interactive presentation will focus on the J. Marion Sims monument to explore how we can understand Sim’s medical research and experimentation on enslaved women, the East Harlem community response to his memorialization, and future possibilities for remembering this difficult history.
Harriet Senie, Professor of Art History, The Graduate Center
