Exhibit Opening! "Public Space & Scrutiny: How Do We Remember?"
Please join us for an opening reception of "Public Space & Scrutiny: How Do We Remember?" at the AIA New Orleans Design Center, 1000 St. Charles Avenue, on Friday, May 20th, 2022, 5pm-8pm.
The exhibit will be up from Friday, May 20th, until Friday, June 24th, 2022. The exhibit hours are 1:30-5:30pm week days at the AIA New Orleans Design Center.
The exhibition showcases research and student work from Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 - funded by the SOM Research Prize.
About the Exhibit: Monuments and memorials have been the focus of contentious national conversations due to, at least in part, who and what they honor, and how their design memorializes the truth or fiction of our collective past. Over the last academic year, professors and students from the Tulane School of Architecture and Department of Psychology have collaborated to share research methods and develop new courses that focus on public space and memory. This exhibition highlights our investigation of existing monuments and exploration into more just and equitable spaces in New Orleans and beyond.
