To commence a yearlong 10-year anniversary, the Nasher Sculpture Center will present 'Nasher XChange', a dynamic art exhibition consisting of 10 newly - commissioned public sculptures by contemporary artists at sites throughout the city of Dallas from October 19, 2013 to February 16, 2014. Covering a diverse range of sites and approaches to sculpture, 'Nasher XChange' represents the first citywide, museum-organized public art exhibition in the United States.

The artists invited to participate in 'Nasher XChange' — Lara Almarcegui, Good/Bad Art Collective, Rachel Harrison, Alfredo Jaar, Liz Larner, Charles Long, Rick Lowe, Vicki Meek, Ruben Ochoa, and Ugo Rondinone— represent a range of sculptural practices in contemporary sculpture locally, nationally, and internationally. For the 'Nasher XChange' project, specifically, the artists have selected a variety of geographical, social, historical, environmental, and esthetic settings around the city of Dallas. These projects will be further enhanced through important collaborations with key community partners who will contribute to the artistic process, alongside the artists and the Nasher Sculpture Center.

Along with paying tribute to the history of the Nasher Collection of displaying sculpture in public places, 'Nasher XChange' advances the museum's exhibition program, which was expanded in 2009 to include contemporary sculpture through exhibitions featuring such artists as Ken Price, Ernesto Neto, Tony Cragg, and Jaume Plensa. The Nasher has also initiated its 'Sightings' series, which invites contemporary artists, such as Martin Creed, Eva Rothschild, and Diana Al-Hadid, to create installations responding to the architectural setting of the Nasher's Renzo Piano building. 'Nasher XChange' will provide an opportunity to extend this program out of the museum and into multiple communities.

In addition to commissioning these significant new art projects throughout the city, the museum plans scholarly publications, conferences, and educational programs for the public, as well as a free public celebration for the 10th anniversary on October 19, 2013 entitled 10+.

'Nasher XChange' has already received an historic amount of gifts and pledges for the project from local foundations, corporations and individual donors in excess of $1 million, including significant support of the Communities Foundation of Texas, the Eugene McDermott Foundation, and a major, leading gift from the Hoblitzelle Foundation, which is the largest single grant the Nasher Sculpture Center has received. The Nasher Foundation has also provided important guidance and financial support to commemorate this milestone anniversary for the Center.
