Candy Chang created a new participatory public installation called A Monument for the Anxious and Hopeful at The Rubin Museum of Art in New York, NY, on view through 2018 (February 2018 to January 7, 2019). As part of their year-long exhibition on the theme of the future, this collaboration with James A. Reeves is a living catalogue of the ways in which we relate to the uncertainty of tomorrow.

Before I Die is merely one of the most creative community projects ever.” —The Atlantic
“Do you embrace your doubts and nervous thoughts? Or tuck them away? For artist Candy Chang, these emotions are material. Her public art works are internationally renowned for their vulnerability and interactivity… From public displays of anonymously submitted secrets to collecting a community's dreams and aspirations for their built environment to encouraging others to cry in public, Chang's emotionally driven projects prove we may have more in common with our neighbors than we think.” —Forbes
“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
