Nasher Prize Dialogue: Sculpture + History
March 6, 2018 | 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m.| Free
In conjunction with the Nasher Sculpture Center’s Nasher Prize, The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza will host a public panel discussion on March 6, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. Nasher Prize Dialogues: Sculpture + History will look to the ways in which artists work with documents, found and archived materials, and research to create sculptural work that considers particularly potent historic moments and issues, as well as the current political climate.
Taking place in Dallas, a city marked profoundly by the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy and racial inequality, Nasher Prize Dialogues: Sculpture + History will consider the complex ways in which sculpture tackles the past. Panelists will include Chilean-born, New York-based artist, architect and filmmaker Alfredo Jaar; artist and recent recipient of the Calder Prize Jill Magid (New York); artist and educator Paul Ramirez Jonas (New York), and Dallas-based artist lauren woods. The conversation will be moderated by Ben Davis, national art critic for artnet News.
The discussion is part of Nasher Prize Dialogues, the discursive platform of the Nasher Prize, the annual international prize for a living artist in recognition of a body of work that has had an extraordinary impact on the understanding of sculpture. Previous international Nasher Prize Dialogues programs include “The Public Place of Sculpture” at Museo Jumex, Mexico City; “The Work of Sculpture in the Age of Digital Production” at the Akademie der Künste, Berlin; and “Why Sculpture Now?” at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, in partnership with the Henry Moore Foundation.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m. | Program begins at 7:00 p.m.
