Over 3 months during the summer of 2021, Nancy Baker Cahill, Audrey Chan, Joel Garcia with Meztli Projects, and Patrick Martinez researched and created original augmented reality artworks through Oxy Arts’ artist-in-residence program. The prompt was to create a future monument for a chosen site in Los Angeles. The collection of artworks created through this residency represent new sociotechnical imaginaries for the city.

Join us for a panel discussion between our resident artists, moderated by Tricia Kim, Associate Director of Public Engagement at Monument Lab and Editor of the Bulletin. Artists will share about their process throughout the residency, speak about their original AR monuments, and discuss the future of monuments with leading scholar in the field, Tricia Kim.

Monument Lab is a public art and history studio whose mission is to facilitate critical conversation around the past, present and future of monuments. Monument Lab was a key partner throughout the residency.
