We're Taking in 10

Nasher XChange”

all over town, gazing at Dallas’ first-ever museum-mounted public sculpture show. “Nasher XChange,” organized by the Nasher Sculpture Center to commemorate its first decade, is an open-ended view of new practices in contemporary sculpture told from the viewpoint of site-specific works commissioned by the Nasher from 10 talents at the forefront of a game-changing dialogue. Headliners meld the local, national and global: Lara Almarcegui, UNT-founded Good/Bad Art Collective, Rachel Harrison, the hard-hitting Alfredo Jaar, Liz Larner, Charles Long, Houston’s acclaimed Project Row House founder Rick Lowe, Dallas-based Vicki Meek, Ruben Ochoa and Swiss master Ugo Rondinone (who intervenes in Fish Trap Lake). Each is crafting a sculpture in response to a unique setting in the Dallas area (October 19 – February 16, 2014). We’re hoping “XChange” can become a permanent part of the Nasher programming, happening every decade, paralleling Sculpture Project Münster (Germany).
