About Sam Durant

Sam Durant is most interested in the political dimension of cultural events and creating new visualizations of what has become accepted or forgotten as part of history. The ever-growing range of subjects that have caught his interest includes student riots, the Kent State massacre, the Civil Rights movement, international trade relationships, and conflict between Native Americans and settlers. Durant’s projects are often critical and playful at the same time. He draws widely from a range of disciplines and techniques, including ceramic, fabricated globes, printed matter, interactive websites, and photography. Durant has a particularly persisting interest in public monuments.
