The Nasher Prize Graduate Symposium, started in 2017, provides graduate students from around the world with the opportunity to present new scholarship on the work of each year’s laureate. A weeklong virtual event, the symposium is one of the key ways that the Nasher Sculpture Center encourages the creation of new research on the practice of contemporary sculpture. 

The multi-day event will address a broad audience of art historians and museum professionals, allowing symposium participants to receive feedback from fellow presenters, the moderator, the keynote speaker, and audience members. This year’s symposium will be moderated by Dr. Lauren Cross, Assistant Professor, Interdisciplinary Art and Design Studies, College of Visual Arts & Design, University of North Texas. Students selected to participate will have their papers published in the annual Nasher Prize Graduate Symposium Compendium, together with a paper delivered by the keynote speaker, Kellie Jones, Hans Hofmann Professor of Modern Art at Columbia University.
