Sculpture + History

2017 Nasher Prize Dialogues | Location: Dallas

At The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza a panel discussion looks 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 artists Alfredo Jaar, Jill Magid, and Paul Ramirez Jonas, and lauren woods. The event will be moderated by National Art Critic for Artnet News, Ben Davis at The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza.
