Clark County Public Arts is proud to present Queer Monuments juried by Emily Budd.

Queer Monuments challenges the classical masculine and cultish notions of monuments and provides a platform for ephemeral and anti-monumental alternatives. Monuments are popularly seen as works of art that share the stories of people, convey societal values, and remind us of people’s lived histories; they are objects of remembrance. Anti-monuments take these basic premises and reappropriate them to tell the resilient stories of LGBTQIA+ people. The artists in this exhibition present personal monuments to the queerness in their lives.

Sculptor Emily Budd will lead as the exhibition’s juror, infusing her expertise and passion into the selection process. Budd’s sculptural practice, driven by the pursuit of queer futurity and place-making, has garnered acclaim for its transformative narratives. Her project, Memorial for Queer Rhyolite, stands as a poignant tribute to an era marked by the AIDS epidemic, capturing the essence of Nevada’s queer utopian spirit. Budd’s groundbreaking work has been featured in respected publications such as The Washington Post and showcased on Discovery Channel’s Mysteries of the Abandoned: Hidden America.
