Join Nasher Prize Laureate Michael Rakowitz as he delivers a dynamic, virtual lecture in which he will consider the meanings of places and objects as part of his cultural heritage and their impact on his work as an artist.
Join the livestream at 12 p.m. CDT.
During this time of social separation, Rakowitz explores the question: “If I can’t be there with you, how can I show you where I am?”
