Monuments and Memorials: Art and History in Public Spaces

Modupe Labode, associate professor of history and museum studies at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, speaks on the interpretation of art and historical monuments in modern public space. Who determines what monuments dominate public spaces? What should happen to Confederate monuments? How do public art displays affect the interpretation of history in the public? Labode’s work includes explorations in public history, art history, and monuments and memorials. She is writing a manuscript about Fred Wilson’s public art project along the Indianapolis Cultural Trail, E Pluribus Unum, which was terminated due to public protest.
