Monument/Anti-Monument is an international conference that will bring together artists, curators, art historians, architects, academics, urban planners, archaeologists and other experts to explore the intersection of sculpture and the public realm. While the public sculpture and monuments of the host city of St. Louis will be used frequently as a catalyst for discussion, the conference will also seek a broader dialogue that will encompass a global perspective on sculpture and its relationship to place. The conference keynote speaker will be artist Rafael Lozano-Hemmer.
Monument/Anti-Monument is being organized as part of Sculpture City Saint Louis 2014, an initiative that brings together a consortium of programmers and practitioners from across the St. Louis region in a challenge to launch new exhibitions and commissions; sponsor lectures, educational programs; develop sculpture-related community resources, and engage new audiences for sculpture.
The conference organizers invite proposals for panel sessions. Proposals should be submitted by panel chairs and respond to the conference brief. Proposals are due September 16, 2013. Conference will take place in St. Louis on April 10-12, 2014
