Memory and Public Space Unconference: Prototypes

1010 Northwest Flanders Street

Opening Wednesday, August 25 at 6 p.m. and on view through October 9
In-Person Event; No registration required.

Prototypes is a physical container for the discussions, debates, reflections, and questions posed by Converge 45’s Portland’s Monuments & Memorials Project (PMMP), which for the past eight months has brought people together to consider the conditions and impacts of public monuments, including those that have been removed and those that should be built. The exhibition highlights Oregon artists engaged in the national reckoning over our markers of history that compound racial injustice and social inequity and asks, What is an appropriate monument or memorial for this time and place? What monument or memorial would you want in your neighborhood?

Presented by Converge 45.
