Coinciding with No Monument: In the Wake of the Japanese American Incarceration, scholars Margo Machida, Elena Tajima Creef, and Karen Yamashita join the exhibition’s guest curators Genji Amino and Christina Hiromi Hobbs for a webinar discussion reflecting on the problems of history and memory raised by the exhibition, which focuses on the overlooked experiments of Japanese American sculptors and photographers in the wake of the World War II incarceration. 

How do we remember an event rendered unrepresentable from the outset by official narratives, and unspeakable in retrospect by collective trauma? 

The presentations will last approximately 45 minutes, followed by a moderated discussion led by Genji Amino and Christina Hiromi Hobbs, with time afterwards for questions and comments. Live closed captioning is provided. Program times listed are EDT (Eastern Daylight Time). Please send any questions to
