Photograph of Nicholas Arbatsky's "Monument to the eighth defendant," 1988, masonite, rosewood, aluminum bonding, lacquer, and dry pigment, 58.4x10.2x10.2 cm.The work was part of the exhibition "The Whole World is Still Watching," August 26-October 1, 1988, which commemorated the 1968 Democratic Convention and was organized by Dan Mills and Maureen Sherlock. "A proposal for any monument should bring into question the meaning of what a monument should be: whether it is 30 seconds of dead airtime during the television broadcast of the Superbowl, or a chair cast from lead, suspended 22' upon a Cor-10 steel base. Is it necessary to highlight the fact that Bobby Seale was gagged and handcuffed to a metal chair during the Chicago 7 trial? Is the NBC Courtroom drawing of a nameless restrained black man entitled 'the eighth defendant' symbolic of the 1986 Democratic Convention? This proposal is the monument itself. -Nicholas Arbatsky." --[Source: The Whole World is Still Watching, August

Photograph of Dan Peterman's "Port-O-Cops," 1988, mixed media collage, 77.5x113 cm.The work was part of the exhibition "The Whole World is Still Watching," August 26-October 1, 1988, which commemorated the 1968 Democratic Convention and was organized by Dan Mills and Maureen Sherlock. "Police lines and port-a-johns have both occupied the same site, in and around Grant Park (though not at the same time). They both operate on behalf of the city of Chicago. Both are composed of individual units which stand shoulder to shoulder with the intention of maintaining public order and both, it appears, are likely to malfunction if too much shit is thrown at them. My proposal is an attempt to explore parallels between the police lines of 1968 and the lines of port-a-johns found at city-sponsored events like "Taste of Chicago," jazz festivals, etc. Though perhaps this is not a sculptural proposal as much as a sort of dedication. -Dan Peterman." --[Source: The Whole World is Still Watching, August 26-October 1, 1988 (rsga_pst_00094)]
