“Nasher Prize Laureate Michael Rakowitz and artist Jin-Ya Huang discuss the difficulties and opportunities of food and community-centered social practice artwork in the time of social distancing.
FREE and open to the public. Advance registration required.
Earlier this year, the two artists came together to create a community meal in Dallas, free to all, catered by Huang’s non-profit kitchen—Break Bread, Break Borders—which employs and empowers refugee women. The conversation will be moderated by Nasher Curator Catherine Craft.

2020 Nasher Prize Laureate Michael Rakowitz’s career began in the late 1990s. Rakowitz’s dynamic body of work has involved intensive research, resulting in an array of objects, environments, films, and publications that seek to reclaim, reposition, or refocus complicated aspects of material and cultural histories or events. He has especial interest in refugee and migrant populations, particularly from the Middle East. Often durational in nature, his projects frequently enlist the participation of collaborators or the public to create objects or events, making the work as much participatory as it is material. “
