Paul Brach Visiting Artist Lecture Series
Lauren Woods is a conceptual artist based in Dallas, TX whose hybrid media projects—film, video and sound installations, public interventions, and site-specific work—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 with new media.
Woods will be exhibiting her latest installation American MONUMENT at UAM in Long Beach from September 16 through December 9, 2018 with the support of the Mike Kelly Foundation.
