University of Maryland professor and art historian Renée Ater leads a focused discussion on ideas of monumentality, history painting, and competing narratives of a nation in Mark Bradford’s Pickett’s Charge.

Ater is currently engaged in a digital publication entitled Contemporary Monuments to the Slave Past: Race, Memorialization, Public Space, and Civic Engagement, a scholarly project that investigates how we visualize, interpret, and engage the slave past through contemporary monuments created for public spaces.
