Doris Salcedo

The Nasher Sculpture Center released a video about the Nasher Prize, the first international award devoted exclusively to sculpture. Jeremy Strick, Director of the center, announced that Colombian artist Doris Salcedo was the winner of the first Nasher Prize. The decision to give this recognition to Salcedo was based on a body of work created in the last three decades that responds to the social problems and events in her homeland.

Additionally, Strick discusses five of the most recognized works by Salcedo and their significance. Okwui Enwezor, curator and writer, made a brief speech in which he defined Salcedo as one of the most original artists and thinkers working with sculpture today.
