FINAL WEEK
Memory’s Place: Alternative Sites and Histories

When Does It or You Begin? closes with the impact of memory on space(s) and the way(s) that histories are created by highlighting the multiple cultures that happen within creative communities. Time and time again, the historical record demonstrates discrepancies between lived experiences, the official record, and the imagination.
