"Public Art in the Era of Black Lives Matter” Public Art Dialogue (PAD) sponsored session at CAA February 15-18, 2017, New York. As the #BlackLivesMatter social movement has exposed the specious nature of claims that the U.S. is a post-racial society, it has prompted a coming to terms with under-acknowledged histories of slavery, segregation, police brutality, mass incarceration, and other forms of racism. Symbols of the Confederacy in the public sphere, whether flags or sculptures, have become renewed sites of contention for contemporary protesters in the black liberation struggle.
