Mallory Nezam, De Nichols, and I, collectively known as MADAD, are part of the 2020 cohort of Monument Lab's Transnational Fellows for our project Black Memory STL: Division, Displacement, and Local Diaspora. Black Memory STL is a multi-year series of public art installations and interventions that stem from community collaborations developed through our partnerships with the Chouteau Greenway development and the Griot Museum of Black History. You can read more about us and the project here.
Monument Lab Fellows are artists, activists, and civic practitioners who critically reimagine monuments in sites and spaces across North America and Germany. Check out all of the amazing 2020 fellows here.
Additionally, Monument Lab 2019 and 2020 Fellows will be featured in Shaping the Past, a multi-site exhibition and book project that addresses pressing issues around what, whom, and how to remember in public spaces.
