The Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas, in association with The Common Guild presents an event as part of the Nasher Prize Dialogues: a panel discussion considering issues around the idea of artistic licence, and the use / re-use of existent material. The discussion will consider questions around ownership, originality, responsibility, ethics, and authorship in 21st century art production.

Speakers: Katrina Brown (Director, The Common Guild) and artists Christine Borland, Sam Durant and Mark Leckey.

The Nasher Prize Dialogues are intended to foster international awareness of sculpture and of the Nasher Prize, and to stimulate discussion and debate.

Inaugurated in 2016, The Nasher Prize is the most significant award in the world dedicated exclusively to contemporary sculpture. It is presented annually to a living artist that has had an extraordinary impact on the understanding of the art form. Previous recipients have been Doris Salcedo, and Pierre Huyghe. The 2018 laureate is Theaster Gates.
