Chickasaw Dedication and Nadim Karam Lecture
“I discovered Nadim Karam’s work when researching the catalytic effect of public art on the revitalization of urban centers following a period of crisis. His humanist and poetic approach have been crucial to overcoming tremendous obstacles and preconceived notions in complex settings,” said Christina Lanzl, executive director of the UrbanArt Commission. “To me, he is the Phoenix of Beirut, whose efforts helped in ushering in that city’s cultural and economic revitalization. We very much look forward to sharing Nadim Karam’s unique perspective with Memphis students and the community at large.”
The American Institute of Architects published Lanzl’s essay on Nadim Karam in August, available online by clicking here.
