RSVP TO ATTEND OPENING RECEPTION
Shaping the Past builds connections and showcases patterns that constitute a transnational memory culture at work to address systemic racism and sexism, social and economic exclusion, and legacies of colonial and state violence. Featuring works by artists, activists, and collectives from North America and Germany — all part of the Monument Lab Fellows Program — this exhibition broadens understandings and illuminates ongoing memory interventions that reimagine civil society. The spotlighted projects offer innovative and reparative models that highlight creative changemakers who are actively shaping the past and our paths forward.

Part of a titular project begun in 2019, Shaping the Past will be presented in Los Angeles from December 4th - February 28th, 2022, where posters highlighting the works of artists Sergio Beltrán-García, Zyahna BryantThalia Fernández BustamanteUlf AmindeTomie AraiKanyinsola AnifowosheArielle Julia BrownCheyenne Concepcion, and Joel Garcia will be on view along with No Longer Untold, by Joel Garcia.

Joel Garcia's No Longer Untold is an invitation to weave our stories together. This altar serves as a portal to connect Shaping the Past, an exhibition of work by international fellows, to the local work around memory, memory justice, monuments and land return. You can contribute to this altar during the run of this exhibition.

Shaping the Past can be viewed at the following times:
