Watch: Paul Ramírez Jonas on Public Art
“I was making monuments, not sculptures,” says MAP artist Paul Ramírez Jonas about his projects Publicar (2009) in Porto Alegre, Brazil, and We Make the Treasure (2014) in San Francisco. “Monuments tend to be about or for society, or for a group of people, for a shared history or a shared experience.” Ramírez Jonas’s work Another Day (2003) was recently acquired for the Guggenheim’s collection under the auspices of the Guggenheim UBS MAP Purchase Fund.
