On Thursday night, the New Museum teams up with the Museum of Transgender Hirstory & Art (MOTHA), bringing together a select group of artists to propose new monuments to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall riots. Participating artists commissioned by MOTHA include Chris E. Vargas, Chris Bogia, Devin N. Morris, and D’hana Perry.
The event takes place during the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, and each proposal argues for “how to understand and situate this hirstory in our contemporary moment.” This program also coincides with Chris E. Vargas’s exhibition Conscious Razing: The Stonewall Re-memorialization Project at the New Museum. The exhibition explores Stonewall “as a geographically, demographically, and historically contested site.”
Tickets to the event are $15 and can be purchased here.
When: Thursday, January 17, 7pm
Where: The New Museum, 235 Bowery, Lower East Side, Manhattan
