Drawing on themes of identity, representation, and the legitimacy of monuments, this talk will explore a number of public art projects recently commissioned in London including recent tributes to the Windrush Generation and their descendants.
This talk considers if public art interventions need to be monumental in scale, permanent, or material to be impactful, and will examine the potential of memorials and memorialisation as vehicles for learning, contemplation, and reflection.
This event aims to raise awareness and offer a platform for debate around the importance of public art to create more inclusive public spaces that better reflect the diversity and hybridity of the British public today.
