Hyperallergic on MemoryLab

Monica Uszerowicz covers MemoryLab for Hyperallergic:

All histories are multifaceted, contingent on who’s telling it, and that’s maddeningly clear here. In their examination of Miami’s history, the artists in MemoryLab are essentially communicating the city’s present and future, because life is too cyclical to keep it all separated.
