2022 Nasher Prize Laureate Nairy Baghramian

In celebration of the selection of Nairy Baghramian as the recipient of the 2022 Nasher Prize, the Nasher Sculpture Center presents sculptures from her recent series Misfits, including a new work created by the artist for this installation. Since the 1990s, Baghramian has explored elements of sculptural practice and installation to create works that challenge their settings and upend expected modes of presentation as well as the social, political, and historical contexts informing them. Using an abstract vocabulary that combines geometric and organic forms, she highlights the subtle connections underlying varied human activities, often through overt or oblique references to the body.
