A Monument for the Anxious and Hopeful

The Rubin Museum of Art
150 West 17th St.,
New York, USA
Feb 10, 2018 To Nov 11, 2018


Detail: Anxiety and hope are often defined by a moment that has yet to arrive. How often do we memorialize our hopes and anxieties and consider their relationship to the future? A Monument for the Anxious and Hopeful is an opportunity to express your apprehensions and expectations for tomorrow, contemplate your sense of the future, and engage with the viewpoints of others.

Inspired by Tibetan prayer flags and the anonymity of public spaces, artist Candy Chang and writer James A. Reeves ask Rubin visitors to engage with their community by sharing their anxieties or hopes on a card. At a glance, passersby in our Spiral Lobby will be able to glean the prevailing mood of respondents and, drawing closer, explore hundreds of individual meditations that range from personal, local, and specific statements to political, theoretical, and spiritual reflections.
