Nasher Prize Dialogues:

Performance as Sculpture

August 23, 2018

Reykjavik, Iceland – venue: Reykjavik Art Museum
Panelists: Theaster Gates, Ragnar Kjartansson

For this next international iteration of Nasher Prize Dialogues, presented in partnership with the Reykjavik Art Museum, artists Theater Gates (2018 Nasher Prize Laureate) and Ragnar Kjarstansson will speak in conversation about the role of performance within their respective sculptural practices. Both artists have incredibly varied modes of working, but each uses performance—from music to highly orchestrated films and interventions—as a way of considering narratives of place, history, fact and fiction, and human relationship.
