lauren woods (U.S., born 1979) is a conceptual artist whose hybrid media projects engage themes of historical justice and public memory, and examine invisible dynamics in society. Among her public works is «Drinking Fountain #1,» a new media monument to the American Civil Rights Movement, located underneath the remnant of a Jim Crow “White Only” sign.

(DIS)FIGURATIONS is a performative lecture in which lauren woods probes the construction of race in the white imaginary. This program is presented in conversation with woods’ video "(S)Port of San Francisco" (2006), which is on view in our current exhibition «The Time. The Place. Contemporary Art from the Collection.»
