To celebrate its 10th anniversary, the Nasher Sculpture Center presents Nasher XChange, a dynamic public art exhibition consisting of 10 newly-commissioned public sculptures by contemporary artists at 10 sites throughout the city of Dallas from October 19, 2013 to February 16, 2014.

The Nasher Sculpture Center is bringing its newest exhibit “to light.” Beginning this week and continuing through October 25, green searchlights will illuminate the Dallas night sky in celebration of the Nasher Xchange and its ten exhibits located throughout the city.

Covering a diverse range of neighborhoods and approaches to sculpture, Nasher XChange represents the first citywide, museum-organized public art exhibition in the United States, and was inspired by Raymond and Patsy Nasher’s enduring legacy of making art accessible to all with the opening of NorthPark Center almost 50 years ago.

The Nasher Sculpture Center commissioned artists Lara Almarcegui, Rachel Harrison, Alfredo Jaar, Charles Long, Liz Larner, Rick Lowe, Vicki Meek, Ruben Ochoa, Ugo Rondinone, and Good/Bad Art Collective to create works for the Nasher XChange exhibition. We invite you to discover Dallas through the public art located throughout the city.

“Nasher XChange is a show about public art, surveying the radically different approaches artists art taking to public work, but it’s also a show about Dallas. Each site chosen is important and distinctive, and each says something different about the past, present – and future – of this city.”
– Director Jeremy Strick

Nasher XChange is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, Art Works, and a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts.
