ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:

MICRO-MONUMENTS II: UNDERGROUND aims to reveal a deeper understanding of cultures throughout history, and to allow contemporary artists to interpret cultural changes in order to reimagine monuments in our current cultural context. The inaugural MICRO-MONUMENTS exhibition, which took place in 2015 at the Landesmuseum in Schönebeck, Germany, served as a collaboration and cross-cultural project with the Washington Sculptors Group. Building on the theme and success of the first exhibition, MICRO- MONUMENTS II: UNDERGROUND will incorporate prehistoric, historic, and contemporary monuments across cultures. Through MICRO-MONUMENTS II: UNDERGROUND, questions about how we impact the land we occupy, how we learn from deep time and history to understand ourselves in a larger context, and what we have learned from the past will be addressed.

Dr. Gunnar Schellenberger, State Secretary for Culture in the State Chancellery and Ministry of Culture of the State of Saxony-Anhalt, has supported MICRO-MONUMENTS. He continues to be instrumental in making this collaboration happen between IA&A at Hillyer and the Washington Sculptors Group. Artemis Herber, former WSG President and curator for the previous MICRO-MONUMENTS exhibition, will return and serve as the Coordinating Curator to create a new exhibition that combines the work of WSG artists with curated work by German artists.
