ephemeral monuments

William Cordova, current artist in residence at Headlands Center for the Arts, will address the idea of “ephemeral monuments”—a presence constructed through absence, but also through form, function, and necessity. Cordova asks: How does evidence of our past construct our future? Recent solo exhibitions include smoke signals: viviendo pa’ la ciudad at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco.

Presented in partnership with Headlands Center for the Arts.
