IDSVA Student Zoma Wallace at the Nasher Prize Graduate Symposium

On April 5, 2018, IDSVA student Zoma Wallace, was invited to share her ideas on the graceful nature of Theaster Gates’ mark-making at the Nasher Prize Graduate Symposium.  Her paper, Saving Grace: Considering Theaster Gates' Poetic Reclamations as Acts of Grace was particularly well-received by the keynote speaker, Michael Jessie Jackson and by Theaster Gates himself.

A note from Zoma:

I credit the IDSVA process in making this feat achievable. The entire experience was exhilarating. The challenge was inspiring. And grace remains an obsession that I feel compelled to continually explore.
