EFA Project Space presents Post Memory: A Collection of Makeshift Monuments, on view from February 21 through March 28, 2009. Curated by Yaelle Amir, the exhibition features artists investigating alternative approaches to the process of memorializing, representing “various outcomes of remembrance through a mediated history.” Using vicarious experience as their source, the artists enlist a variety of disciplinary practices such as performance, intervention, and mapping, to redefine the act of commemoration of people and events that have faded from collective consciousness.Opening reception sponsored by Magic Hat Brewing Company
