Monument Lab is a public art and history studio based in Philadelphia. Monument Lab works with artists, students, activists, municipal agencies, and cultural institutions on participatory approaches to public engagement and collective memory. Founded by Paul Farber and Ken Lum in 2012, Monument Lab cultivates and facilitates critical conversations around the past, present, and future of monuments. Through exhibitions, research programs, and fellowships, Monument Lab critically engages our inherited symbols in order to unearth the next generation of monuments that elevate stories of resistance and hope.
Monument Lab is a fiscally sponsored project of Culture Trust Greater Philadelphia (CTGP), a charitable 501(c)(3) trust supporting diverse cultural practices in the Philadelphia region. CTGP is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
