Nasher Prize Dialogues:

Performance as Sculpture

August 23, 2018

Reykjavik, Iceland – venue: Reykjavik Art Museum

Panelists: Theaster Gates, Ragnar Kjartansson

Moderator: Markús Þór Andrésson

For this next international iteration of Nasher Prize Dialogues, presented in partnership with the Reykjavik Art Museum, artists Theaster 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.

The program and live broadcast will begin at 6 p.m. in Iceland / 1 p.m. CDT. 

Please note: this program takes place in Reykjavik, Iceland at the Reykjavik Art Museum.  By RSVPing, you are securing a spot at that event.
