"The University Art Museum, College of the Arts, and Cal State Long Beach, have kneecapped a project that is focusing on black lives and police brutality. They have killed a leadership initiative whose focus was to not only address white supremacy but to disrupt it. They have rejected the invitation for collective authorship of this effort. As it stands, the UAM is not capable of hosting this iteration of American MONUMENT. American MONUMENT can only resume its co-creative process when restored, which can only happen with Kimberli Meyer retained as director of UAM...
...I want to offer the university the chance to engage in a restorative process and demonstrate their commitment to the work of antiracism, an impulse that is evident by the choice to hire Kimberli Meyer who declared upfront that this was the mission and vision for her tenure. I am calling for the university to engage in a restorative process and to take a public stance on ending police brutality and the culture and practice of anti-blackness. "
--excerpt from lauren woods' public statement delivered at the launch of American MONUMENT, September 16, 2018
