CHART 2019

CHART is proud to partner with Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas, USA, to co-host a talk on contemporary sculptural practice. This year CHART will collaborate with the renowned Nasher Sculpture Center of Dallas, Texas, in facilitating a talk on hybrid sculptural forms with some of contemporary art’s most interesting cross-disciplinary artists.


Nasher Sculpture Center is home to one of the finest collections of modern and contemporary sculptures in the world, the Raymond and Patsy Nasher Collection, with a mission to be an international focal point and catalyst for the study and conservation of modern and contemporary sculpture.


Under the title Nasher Prize Dialogues: Sculpture + Design, the talk hosted by CHART is part of the discursive platform of the Nasher Prize, an annual award given to an artist who has made a tremendous impact on the practice of sculpture. The talk will take the form of a panel discussion moderated by art historian, critic and Professor of University College London, Briony Fer, and explores the sculptural forms of contemporary participating artists Martin Boyce (UK), Nina Beier (DK) and Elmgreen & Dragset (NO/DK). Each in their own way, these artists deploy both architecture and design within their artistic practices, from altered readymades and architectural interventions to highly crafted recreations of the built environment.


The talk is part of an extensive talks programme developed for this year’s edition of CHART, focusing on the artist’s voice. With this programme CHART invites audiences to engage in in-depth conversations on contemporary artistic practices. With the Nasher Prize Dialogues talk we hope to extend the collaborative reach of this work. The talk is held Saturday 31 August at 15:00 –16:00 at the Apollo Canteen, Charlottenborg.
