Memorial.Monument.Movement, a nation-wide exhibition of art by artists, community activists, and organizations. Memorial.Monument.Movement will be a dynamic interactive exhibition platform to amplify art as a call to action to vote in November 2020. Since the death of George Floyd, memorials and monuments to Black Lives Matter have been created throughout the neighborhoods and towns in the US. Our interactive exhibition will showcase these projects and remind us all that protecting our democracy and ending systemic racism starts with getting out the vote on Election Day November 3, 2020.
Since the murder of George Floyd, spontaneous artwork including monuments, murals, and more have been created in defiance of Black lives lost to police violence. They include posters, murals, crafts, temporary replacements for toppled statues, videos of performances, bead works, digital projects, etc. Our goal is to gather and archive the dynamic creative expressions of our communities to increase voter turnout in November.
This project is made possible by Art Against Racism, a NJ non-profit organization, and The Brodsky Center.
Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey is an affiliated partner providing technical support.
