Like a Wrecking Ball: Using Art and Humor to Confront Racist Statues in Australia and the USA
In this timely webinar, Aboriginal Australian artist Tony Albert (Girramay) and Native American artist Nicholas Galanin (Tlingit-Unangax) will discuss the power of art and humor to address problematic statues honoring colonial legacies. How do public monuments, in both the USA and Australia, contribute to the erasure of Indigenous peoples and how do they normalize violence and racism? How can contemporary art about statues be a force for social change? These questions and more will be explored and discussed, moderated by scholar-activist Jalane Schmidt. Co-presented by the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection and The Fralin Museum of Art at the University of Virginia
