The venue will host artists and galleries, beginning with Belgium’s Harlan Levey Projects, which will mount the inaugural exhibition, “Emmanuel Van der Auwera: White Noise.” Called 214 Projects, the space will allow the organization to explore new programming possibilities that extend beyond Dallas Art Fair’s duration. “Dallas is a city with a rich cultural landscape,” the fair’s director, Kelly Cornell, said in a statement. “Our exhibitors and their artists can now become a much bigger part of it. Directing this space will strengthen our relationships with them and give them the platform to connect with the city on a deeper level.” Spearheaded by Dallas Art Fair chairman John Sughrue, 214 Projects is part of Brook Partners Inc.’s River Bend redevelopment of seventy thousand square feet of space along 2025 Irving Boulevard, which will soon welcome Erin Cluley Gallery, among other businesses. “It has been a decade of hard work to bring the fair to where it is now,” Sughrue said in a statement. “Now that we are in our eleventh year, it’s the right time for us to expand our ground and enter the next phase. We want to give our partners more space for artistic opportunities and at the same time give back to the city.” Read More
