Municipal Bonds is delighted to present Solange Roberdeau's Night Sky Over the Taos Mesa, in Minnesota Street Project's exhibition Monument. This new group show explores the various ways artists reference literal and metaphorical monuments within their practice. The show, which features works from the Project's tenant galleries—with additional works from San Francisco's Catharine Clark Gallery, Guerrero Gallery, and Creativity Explored—is installed in the atrium of the 1275 Minnesota Street building through January 30, 2021.
Monument is informed by poet Elizabeth Bishop's "The Monument," which prompted contributing galleries to broadly consider the notion of monument and monumentality. Each gallery brought forth works which draw ingenious, irreverent, and problematizing references to traditional notions of monumentality.
