Nasher Prize Michael Rakowitz Community BBQ
February 8, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
Join artist Michael Rakowitz, the 2020 Nasher Prize Laureate, as he cooks traditional Iraqi dishes and Texas BBQ at this lunchtime celebration, complete with live music and dancing.
For over two decades, Rakowitz’s sculpture has considered his heritage as an American artist of Iraqi Jewish descent and has confronted the complex legacies of centuries of conflict in the Middle East. One way he does this is by fostering community through the shared experience of a meal with people of various backgrounds. For this event, Rakowitz will work with help from Break Bread Break Borders, a Dallas-based catering company which economically empowers refugee women by employing them as cooks.
