LECTURE | “Memory in the Public Realm: Making the Past Present” by Michael Arad, Keynote Speaker for the Public Memory in the New South Symposium
Saturday, January 12, 2019
College of Charleston School of Sciences and Mathematics Building, Auditorium | 202 Calhoun Street
Michael Arad is a New York-based architect most notable for his design for the National September 11 Memorial at the World Trade Center site in New York City. He is also the designer of the forthcoming Mother Emanuel AME Church Memorial in Charleston. Arad’s design of a permanent memorial for the Emanuel Nine, the clergy and church members who were murdered at the church in 2015, was chosen by a memorial committee from a number of proposals solicited from architects and artists from around the world.
Arad will speak about the role of memorials and public memory, including a presentation on his design of the Mother Emanuel AME Church Memorial project.
