2018 Nasher Prize Laureate Theaster Gates

Theaster Gates

2018 Nasher Prize Laureate

The Nasher Sculpture Center proudly announces the 2018 Laureate, Theaster Gates. From the objects that he creates to the orchestrated exchange of ideas within communal space, Gates has changed what it means to be a sculptor today.

With a strong focus on the material aspects of memory, history, and place, Nasher Prize 2018 Laureate Theaster Gates has established a new paradigm for sculpture by joining together disparate methods of artistic production—the creation of discrete objects and the re-zoning, rebuilding, and reterritorializing1 of architectural spaces.
In April 2015, the Nasher Sculpture Center announced the creation of the Nasher Prize, 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. Each winner is chosen by a jury of renowned museum directors, curators, artists, and art historians who have an expertise in the field, and varying perspectives on the subject, and receives a $100,000 prize, conferred in April of each year. In addition, each winner receives an award object designed by the architect of the Nasher Sculpture Center, Renzo Piano.
