Nasher Sculpture Center, in partnership with The Common Guild as part of Glasgow International 2018, will present a panel discussion “Nasher Prize Dialogues: Artists and Authorship: Reference, Relationships and Appropriation in Contemporary Sculptural Practice,” on May 2, 2018 from 6-8pm (GMT) at the Trades Hall of Glasgow.

The discussion will consider questions around ownership, originality, responsibility, ethics, and authorship in 21st century art production, as well as issues of artistic license, and the use / re-use of existent material. Speakers for the event are artists Christine Borland, Sam Durant and Mark Leckey, and the conversation will be moderated by Katrina Brown, Director, The Common Guild.

The discussion is part of Nasher Prize Dialogues, the discursive platform of the Nasher Prize, the annual international prize for a living artist in recognition of a body of work that has had an extraordinary impact on the understanding of sculpture. The Dialogues are intended to foster international awareness of sculpture and to stimulate discussion and debate. Programs — including panel discussions, lectures, and symposia — are held in cities around the world on a yearly basis, offering engagement with various audiences, and providing myriad perspectives and insight into the ever-expanding field of sculpture.
