2019 Nasher Prize Dialogues in Reykjavik, Iceland

This event is no longer on sale.

Thursday August 23

6:00 PM  –  8:00 PM

Taking place at and held in partnership with Reykjavik Art Museum, Head of Exhibitions and Education Markús Þór Andrésson moderates a conversation with artists Theater Gates (2018 Nasher Prize Laureate) and Ragnar Kjartansson about the role of performance within their respective sculptural practices. Both artists have incredibly varied modes of working, but each uses performance—from music to highly orchestrated films and interventions—as a way of considering narratives of place, history, fact and fiction, and human relationship.

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.
