Laureate Lecture: Michael Rakowitz


Join Nasher Prize Laureate Michael Rakowitz as he considers the meanings of places and objects that are a part of his cultural heritage, and their impact on his work as an artist. 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?”

About Michael Rakowitz

 

Through his work, Rakowitz offers a deeply considered vision of sculpture’s possibilities in the face of political and humanitarian crises. Drawing upon his heritage as an American artist of Iraqi Jewish descent, he has confronted the complex legacies of centuries of conflict in the Middle East, most recently in the Iraq War and its aftermath.
