Nasher Sculpture Center presents The Circle Project
Nasher Sculpture Center will present The Circle Project, an initiative that seeks to highlight the talent of the artists who are part of the Nasher Sculpture Center’s Artist Circle, an affinity group for practicing artists in the north Texas area, through a design partnership with Cerámica Suro, an established ceramics studio based in Guadalajara, Mexico that is known for its frequent collaborations with artists. Each year, the
Nasher will commission an artist from the Artist Circle to design a set of limited edition dinner plates that will be produced by Cerámica Suro and will debut at the Nasher Store in conjunction with the annual Dallas Art Fair in April. Proceeds from the sale of the plates will go towards enriching Nasher Sculpture Center’s exhibition and education programs, such as the Artist Circle.
The first Circle Project edition will feature the work of Pierre Krause, a self-described “post-lol multimedia thing-maker, exile writer, couch curator, SoundCloud rapper, DJ and full-time freak.” Krause’s work straddles various idioms and forms, from sculpture to paintings to text-based interventions and music.
A limited edition of the set of four plates, with an accompanying artist-signed certificate, will be available for $1500 in the Nasher Store. Krause will be in attendance at this special launch event celebrating The Circle Project.
