Conference 2021 Keynote

We are delighted to announce Doris Salcado as our Conference Keynote Speaker

Doris Salcedo makes sculptures and installations that function as political and mental archaeology, using domestic materials charged with significance and suffused with meanings accumulated over years of use in everyday life. Salcedo often takes specific historical events as her point of departure, conveying burdens and conflicts with precise and economical means.

Salcedo was the recipient of the 2020 inaugural Nomura art prize and also received the 2019 Possehl Prize for International Art; Rolf Schock Prize in the Visual Arts (2017); Nasher Sculpture Prize (2015).
