About Doris Salcedo

About Nasher Prize

The Nasher Sculpture Center is proud to announce Colombian artist Doris Salcedo as the inaugural recipient of the Nasher Prize, an award to be presented each year to a living artist who has made an extraordinary impact on our understanding of sculpture.  For the past three decades, Salcedo has created sculptures and installations that transform familiar, everyday objects – chairs, shoes, roses, bricks – into moving and powerful testimonies of loss and remembrance. Working in a variety of modes, from objects and large-scale installations to public interventions, she has fearlessly taken creative and political risks to challenge audiences with innovative, significant work. Salcedo’s commitment and her willingness to push artistic boundaries have already inspired a generation of artists, even as her work continues to grow and respond to many of the most salient issues facing humanity.  — from the Nasher website
