Art Against Racism - Memorial.Monument.Movement

By Jesse North & Dave Tavani, JerseyArts.com

Art Against Racism - Memorial.Monument.Movement

As protests and marches swept the country, calling for justice for the lives of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and other people of color, the organization Art Against Racism worked to capture the Black Lives Matter movement for the art world. What resulted is "Memorial.Monument.Movement," a virtual exhibition that captures dozens of videos and photos of murals, memorials, and images of protests.

Jesse and Dave talk to the co-chairs of the exhibit, Rhinold L. Ponder and Judith Brodsky, about mounting a social justice art exhibit during a pandemic.
