You Are Standing On Occupied Land with Ana María León
Ana María León, assistant professor, History of Art, University of Michigan, presents the lecture “You Are Standing On Occupied Land” at 6:00 p.m. via Zoom as part of the Rice Architecture Fall 2020 Lecture Series.

The text written across the Chicago Cultural Center windows looking onto Michigan Ave reads: "You are looking at unceded land." The sign, installed by the Settler Colonial City Project at the 2019 Chicago Architecture Biennial, makes the observer aware of a history that has been erased for too long. Understanding the history of unceded land brings us to a present of occupied land. León will discuss her research, teaching, and practice as the result of these statements.

Sep 23, 2020 06:00 PM in Central Time (US and Canada)
