Monument Lab


Monument Lab is a public art and history initiative based in Philadelphia. We are a team of curators, artists, scholars, and students who ask open research questions and build prototype monuments in public spaces. Through our practice, we cultivate contemporary artworks, generate publicly sourced civic data, and co-author interpretive experiences. Our goals: to unearth the next generation of monuments and change the ways we write the history of cities together.
