The outdoor exhibition at Socrates Sculpture Park includes Jeffrey Gibson’s kaleidoscopic ziggurat “Because Once You Enter My House, It Becomes Our House,” performances by indigenous American artists, and more.

The outdoor exhibition “Monuments Now,” at Socrates Sculpture Park, in Long Island City (through March), feels attuned to this unprecedented summer of American reckoning. The eye-catching ziggurat “Because Once You Enter My House, It Becomes Our House,” by Jeffrey Gibson (pictured)—a member of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians and a 2019 MacArthur Fellow—doubles as a stage for a trio of indigenous American artists, whose on-site performances will be filmed and released online.
