Gathered in October 2020 during a time of isolation around the world, Hauser & Wirth’s Director of Special Projects, Randy Kennedy, moderates presentations by artists Emmanuel Van Der Auwera, Mika Rottenberg, and Jacolby Satterwhite, as well as design critic Alice Rawsthorn.

About Nasher Prize Dialogues
The discussion is part of Nasher Prize Dialogues, the discursive platform of the Nasher Prize, the annual international prize for a living artist in recognition of a body of work that has had an extraordinary impact on the understanding of sculpture. The Dialogues are intended to foster international awareness of sculpture and to stimulate discussion and debate. Programs—including panel discussions, lectures, and symposia—are held in cities around the world on a yearly basis, offering engagement with various audiences, and providing myriad perspectives and insight into the ever-expanding field of sculpture.
Previous international Nasher Prize Dialogues programs include Artists and Authorship in partnership with The Common Guild, Glasgow in association with Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art 2018; The Public Place of Sculpture at Museo Jumex, Mexico City; The Work of Sculpture in the Age of Digital Production at the Akademie der Künste, Berlin; and Why Sculpture Now? at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, in partnership with the Henry Moore Foundation.
Hartland and Mackie Family; Janelle and Alden Pinnell/The Pinnell Foundation; and Christen and Derek Wilson are the Dialogues Sponsors of the Nasher Prize.
Presented in partnership with Hauser & Wirth gallery and Ursula magazine.
