Monuments to Unknown Heroes: Presenting the ways we memorialize while questioning the underpinnings of public monuments
Curated by Amara Antilla, CAC Senior Curator at Large
On view from April 28 through August 27, 2023
Contemporary Arts Center
Cincinnati, Ohio

Monuments to Unknown Heroes is a participatory installation that investigates how we ascribe value in the context of public monuments. The project brings together nearly a hundred responses that imagine monuments to under-recognized or unknown heroes. Each artist was asked to respond to the prompt, “Who or what is deserving of public commemoration yet has been overlooked?”

This installation is an expansion upon a call for submissions that originally took place in the days following the start of the pandemic. Initiated by conceptual artist and pedagogue Luis Camnitzer, this visual archive captures various perspectives on the ways in which we memorialize. The project also raises questions about the socio-political and economic underpinnings that typically accompany the production of public monuments. The shortfalls of America’s public monuments have received heightened scrutiny in the years following the social justice protests of 2020. Subsequent nationwide campaigns called for the removal or renaming of monuments, streets, and sites that refer to legacies of the Confederacy, settler colonialism, and violence. Traditional monuments often depict male military heroes celebrating acts of war and abuses of power. However, the most heroic acts are often those performed anonymously and without expectations of recognition or reward.

For this presentation, an updated call for proposals was circulated to local and international artists inviting a reflection on the ways in which the people, places, or histories we value ought to be commemorated. Some participants approached this prompt with humor or irony, crafting monuments to honor “second chances” or the “unknown psychotherapist.” Others take a serious look at the ways in which more complex and inclusive national, cultural, and personal histories might occupy our public sites. These proposals include designs for monuments to unknown factory workers, migrants, mothers, and front-line workers, among others. This installation imagines a future in which those who rarely get recognized are seen as society's true heroes, thereby transforming the fabric of our cities and our collective memory.

A portion of the submissions are displayed in the CAC Lobby, and additional works can be viewed on the CAC’s website. You can also scan the QR code found near the installation and on the back of this brochure.

Organized by Amara Antilla, Senior Curator, Contemporary Arts Center.


Artist and pedagogue, Luis Camnitzer presents a series of posters by more than 100 artists depicting proposals for monuments to under-recognized heroes. Originally organized in the days following the pandemic, this visual archive captures various perspectives on the ways in which we memorialize, while raising questions about the socio-political and economic underpinnings that typically accompany the production of public monuments.

The image usually associated with the word "hero" is of a male in military garb. Monuments celebrate individuals perceived as having done a significant service, too often in dubious causes, for powerful interests. Yet, most heroic acts are anonymous and performed as help to fellow citizens, often with implications that call into question the legitimacy of those financing monuments.

This project is designed to fill a cultural gap and celebrate those members of society who are not memorialized in spite of being indispensable to check abuses of power, nurse our mental and physical health, and in general help maintain our well-being as a species in a livable environment.

Organized by artist and educator, Luis Camnitzer, the first iteration of the exhibition took place virtually in June 2020 at the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This second iteration is organized by the Center of Contemporary Art, Cincinnati (CAC) and by the Museo de Arte Moderno de Medellín (MAMM). Works will be printed to be physically shown in sponsored spaces.(*)

(*) CAC will exhibit selected works in the Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati. MAMM will organize a series of exhibits in schools of Medellín institutions and assign the topic for student work. Prints will be destroyed after being exhibited. Images may be used for publicity purposes.

Proyectos Raul Zamudio and Empty Circle are pleased to present You Don’t Need a Weatherman to Know Which Way the Wind Blows. If the title of this exhibition seems familiar, it may be because one, two or numerous reasons. Originally, the phrase appears as part of the lyrics of Bob Dylan’s famous song Subterranean Homesick Blues. And the other source is equally as famous or in this case infamous: it inspired the moniker of the American, left-wing, armed guerilla group known as the Weather Underground.

The organization was an offshoot of the Students for a Democratic Society that were political activists in the 1960s, and then a handful of its members decided to take their ideologies to their logical, violent conclusion culminating in the destruction of a Greenwich Village townhouse due to explosive manufacture, and the robbery of an armored truck and the deaths of three of its personnel.

This international, mixed-media group exhibition is no paean to the Weather Underground; but takes the original source that became a social and political barometer of the 1960s and transposes it to the 2023 global landscape rife with its own social and political turmoil. The artworks exhibited address a myriad of issues that at first sight may seem personal, but as the ‘60s adage goes, the personal can be political. Other works more directly interrogate our current milieu by exploring the topical, while other works address our contemporary quagmire through history. While the artworks can be appreciated through their individual narrativity, in unison the truly act like a social weather report in alerting us to the disasters that await us if we not collectively act to avoid them.

QiPO Fair 2023 will take place February 9 to 12 at Edificio Donde, a newly constructed building in Mexico City’s Historic Center, a short walk from the biggest events happening during Art Fair Week.

Unlike most fairs, QiPO Fair focuses on artist-run initiatives, and we invite artist-run spaces, art collectives, alternative spaces, and smaller project spaces to showcase their work. With exhibitors from Bogota, Los Angeles, Montreal, New York, Tokyo, Chihuahua, Monterrey, Tijuana, y Mexico City, this year's edition promises to be the most diverse and strongest to date.

QiPO Fair will be situated within a 3-minute walking distance from Material Art Fair and Salon Acme, along with a host of gallery openings and pop-up exhibitions in the general vicinity.

The QiPO collective is a project of Fulcrum Arts’ Emerge fiscal sponsorship program.

QiPO Fair is a collaboration between QiPO, CICLO Arte Para Todos, Fulcrum Arts, and our main sponsor Reurubano.
