Which stories belong in public? Re:Generation is a nationwide participatory public art and history project organized by Monument Lab. The project elevates people shaping the next generation of monuments reckoning with and reimagining public memory. We curated Re:Generation through an open call and distributed a total of $1 Million across ten project sites led by local collaborative teams of artists, educators, storytellers, and organizers. Each team will pursue a commemorative campaign rooted in the living history of a neighborhood, city, or region. Monument Lab’s Re:Generation kicks off with nationwide conversations, local exhibitions, and special events from May Day–Labor Day 2022. Re:Generation is supported by the Mellon Foundation’s Monuments Project.

  • Montgomery, Alabama – The More Up Campus
  • Tucson, Arizona – La Doce
  • Los Angeles, California – The Land Under the Plinth
