Join us for Family Day presented in conjunction with the exhibition “MOTHA and Chris E. Vargas: Consciousness Razing,” on view at the New Museum from September 26 to February 3, 2019. Employing a scale model of Christopher Park, “Consciousness Razing” reimagines how we remember the 1969 Stonewall Riots. Inviting 12 artists of different generations to propose new monuments for the park, Vargas offers new narratives for our understanding of historical events. Families are invited to recycle provided materials and personal items to construct monument proposals of their own.
