Nasher Prize Dialogues: Graduate Symposium
The Nasher Prize Graduate Symposium offers students a chance to take the Nasher Prize Laureate Theaster Gates’ work as inspiration for their own scholarly research. Student presentations and an accompanying publication will expand scholarship on the field of contemporary sculpture and its many forms.
The symposium will be moderated by Kimberly Drew, the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Social Media Manager and author of the blog "Black Contemporary Art." The keynote presentation by Matthew Jesse Jackson, a writer, curator, and critic who teaches modern and contemporary art at the University of Chicago, will end the day's events.
