The Nasher Sculpture Center is pleased to announce two virtual presentations in association with Nasher Prize Dialogues: the 2020 Graduate Symposium and a Conversation with artist Michael Rakowitz and Jin-Ya Huang, Founder of Break Bread, Break Borders.

These two presentations are focused on the art and practice of 2020 Nasher Prize Laureate Michael Rakowitz. Since his career began in the late 1990s, Rakowitz’s dynamic body of work has involved intensive research, resulting in an array of objects, environments, films, and publications that seek to reclaim, reposition, or refocus complicated aspects of material and cultural histories or events. He has a special interest in refugee and migrant populations, particularly from the Middle East. Often durational in nature, his projects frequently enlist the participation of collaborators or the public to create objects or events, making the work as much participatory as it is material.
