Candy Chang will be creating an upcoming participatory public installation called A Monument for the Anxious and Hopeful at The Rubin Museum of Art in New York, NY. As part of their year-long exhibition on the theme of the future, this collaboration with James A. Reeves will be a living catalogue of the ways in which we relate to the uncertainty of tomorrow.

“Candy Chang’s work at the intersection of public art, community engagement, and urban design touches on every aspect of art’s role in society and contributes to meaningful placemaking in our communities.” —Public Art Review
Before I Die is merely one of the most creative community projects ever.” —The Atlantic
“[Chang's] art installations offer a vehicle for understanding, one that allows people to be vulnerable and share their beliefs, their joys, and their struggles... In doing so, she’s helping progress the universe’s gradual arc toward collective acceptance. Because we all experience emotions like fear, anger, regret, sorrow, and joy; and because we all, at some point, have a brush with issues like anxiety, addiction, depression, and self-destruction. And when we do, we all deserve compassion.” —UPROXX
