Angie Eng pays homage to conceptual artist, On Kawara’s ‘Today’ series. 32 plaques painted in skin-tone colors each have a unique date and a QR code. Each date corresponds to a notable as well as obscure landmark civil rights case. The selected dates are not limited to racial justice, but also include injustice by gender, disabilities, immigration, class, sexuality, and indigenousness.
