Lauren Woods: Lecture

  • ICA Auditorium 601 West Broad Street Richmond, VA (map)

Lauren Woods is a conceptual artist whose hybrid media projects engage history as a lens by which to view the socio-politics of the present. Challenging the tradition of documentary/ethnography as objective, she creates ethno-fictive documents that investigate invisible dynamics in society, remixing memory and imagining other possibilities. She also explores how traditional monument-making can be translated into new contemporary models of commemoration, substituting the traditional marble and granite for new media.
