Sam Durant combines drawing, sculpture, and sound to create installations that explore the history of modernist art and design, American politics, and the search for social justice. His most recent body of work proposes relocating the monuments to the dead of the American Indian Wars to the Reflecting Pool at the Mall in Washington, D.C. Durant is well known for several projects that explore the relationships among the social and political upheavals of the late 1960s, minimalist art, and modernist furniture and architecture. He teaches at California Institute of the Arts.
