About the Taskforce



New Monuments Taskforce is a fantastical municipal agency engaged in the dialogue, design and development of Bay Area Monuments and Memorials. Led by a collaborative team of artists, activists, designers and cultural workers, NMT strives to broaden public understanding of local monuments and advise relative civic agencies on the removal, redesign or retention of SF’s statuary symbols. We create space for radical research, critical conversations and political engagement through an artistic lens.

Our inaugural art initiative, “The Relic Report (SF),” a two-part publication that evaluates the city’s public art and its intersection with our country’s racist history.
