Daniel Malone: Mały Powstaniec (The Little Upriser)

This exhibition, especially conceived by curator Stanisław Welbel and artist Daniel Malone for Ludlow 38, is based on a set of questions regarding the legal status, rights, and responsibilities of art in public spaces (both outdoors and in museums, universities, etc.) including contemporary forms of censorship and historical revision. It draws on a few very specific stories relating to contemporary figurative art and forms of public monuments found in the former Communist Block, as well as the current debate around the removal of Confederate and other colonialist and/or racist statues in the US.
