Call for Papers: 2017 Nasher Prize Graduate Symposium
The Nasher Sculpture Center announces an open call for participation in the inaugural Nasher Prize Graduate Symposium, which aims to expand scholarship on the field of contemporary sculpture in its many forms. Submissions should address themes related to the work of the 2017 Nasher Prize Laureate, Pierre Huyghe. Known for his multifarious practice encompassing a variety of materials and disciplines, bringing music, cinema, dance, and theater into contact with biology and philosophy, and incorporating time-based elements that vary in intensity—as diverse as fog, ice, parades, rituals, automata, computer programs, video games, dogs, bees, and microorganisms—Huyghe has consistently sought new ways to bring together unconventional and heterogeneous materials into a practice exceeding the sum of its many parts.
Proposals are due by Sunday, December 11, 2016.
