Preview Benefit

The Preview Benefit benefits the Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center and Dallas Contemporary, and offers art patrons and Dallas’ top collectors the opportunity to preview and purchase exhibited works prior to the public opening of the fair.

Established in 1903, the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) is among the 10 largest art museums in the country and is distinguished by its commitment to research, innovation, and public engagement. At the heart of the Museum and its programs is its global collection, which encompasses more than 23,000 works and spans 5,000 years of history, representing a full range of world cultures. Located in the nation’s largest arts district, the Museum acts as a catalyst for community creativity, engaging people of all ages and backgrounds with a diverse spectrum of programming, from exhibitions and lectures to concerts, literary events, and dramatic and dance presentations. Since the Museum’s return to free general admission in 2013, the DMA has welcomed more than two million visitors, and enrolled more than 100,000 people in DMA Friends, a free program available to anyone who wishes to join focused on active engagement with the Museum. For more information, visit The Dallas Museum of Art is supported, in part, by the generosity of DMA Members and donors, the citizens of Dallas through the City of Dallas Office of Cultural Affairs, and the Texas Commission on the Arts.

The Nasher Sculpture Center is one of the few institutions in the world devoted to the exhibition, study, and preservation of modern and contemporary sculpture. It is home to one of the finest sculpture collections in the world, the Raymond and Patsy Nasher Collection, featuring more than 300 masterpieces by Calder, Giacometti, Matisse, Picasso, Rodin, and more. It is also the host of Nasher Prize, an annual international award given to a living artist in recognition of a significant body of work that has had an extraordinary impact on the understanding of sculpture.

Dallas Contemporary is a non-collecting art museum presenting new and fresh ideas from regional, national and international artists. Modeled after European art centers and located in an industrial building in the Design District, Dallas Contemporary is one of the only institutions of its kind in the United States, offering temporary exhibitions, important lectures and seminal learning programs.

214 Projects, 150 Manufacturing Street, Suite 214

As part of an expanding outreach initiative, Dallas Art Fair launched 214 Projects in March 2019. An exhibition and project space at River Bend in the Design District, this additional venue allows Dallas Art Fair exhibitors to present more ambitious gallery installations and special projects on a year-round basis outside of their typical presence during the second week of April. 
For their inaugural exhibition, 214 Projects presents “White Noise,” Belgian artist Emmanuel Van der Auwera‘s first solo exhibition in the United States. This project is realized with the full support of Harlan Levey Projects of Brussels, Belgium, who has been an exhibitor with the Dallas Art Fair since 2015. 

In 2018, Emmanuel’s work was acquired by KANAL Centre - Pompidou (Brussels, Belgium), Mu.ZEE (Ostend, Belgium) and the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art (Eugene, OR, USA), and this year the Dallas Museum of Art finalized its acquisition of the large-scale sculpture “Study for VideoSculpture XIV.” His work has recently been featured in exhibitions at WIELS (Brussels, Belgium), The Centre Pompidou (Paris, France), Palais de Tokyo (Paris, France), Centro per l’Arte Contemporanea Luigi Pecci (Prato, Italy), Ars Electronica (Linz, Austria), Casino Luxembourg - Forum d'art contemporain (Luxembourg City, Luxembourg), and Mu.ZEE (Ostend, Belgium), among others.

Panel: Three Approaches Regarding Abstraction: Rosson Crow, Carrie Moyer and Clare Woods moderated by Anna Katherine Brodbeck

10:30 am - 11:30 am
Nasher Sculpture Center, 2001 Flora Street, Dallas, 75201

Carrie Moyer employs the language of mid-20th Century Abstraction infused with a bold palette and crisp layering of shapes and grounds. By using techniques such as collage and overlay, Moyer’s experience as a graphic designer pulls Modernist source material and techniques to create altogether new, vivid compositions of dynamic proportions. Another aspect of Moyer’s practice is Dyke Action Machine (DAM!), the radical, queer activist project which the artist co-founded in 1991 with photographer Sue Schaffner.

The paintings of Clare Woods map out forms sculpturally in a quick and gestural manner, often rendering her subjects as fluidly as they are laid about her aluminum panels. While initially concerned with landscape as subject, her preoccupation has turned to the human body in recent years. Utilizing found photos and an offbeat, sometimes anemic palette, Woods eerily distorts the familiar while luring us further into the folds and angles of our corporeal selves.

Rosson Crow delves deep into borrowed imagery and nostalgia-laden subjects to create lush and graphic overlays of punchy hues and patterns. Crow mixes both high and low cultural references in a mash-up of an epic scale, often resulting in mind-bending murals of dizzy intoxication. Whether creating an enveloping cluster of postcard cacti or a congested interior of patterns and color, Crow pushes the all-over composition to the hilt.

Moderated by Katherine Brodbeck, The Hoffman Family Senior Curator of Contemporary Art at Dallas Museum of Art.

Carrie Moyer @ One Night Only

7:00 pm - 12:00 am

For her One Night Only celebration, Moyer's new work continues to expand upon her sensual and cerebral visual language. Saturated hues, enchanted surfaces and the overt aesthetic beauty of Carrie’s paintings act as a subversive entry point to her broader task of “queering” the history of American Abstraction. 

Moyer will also debut a site specific ephemeral installation. The work will offer friends a take away piece by the artist, echoing the free pamphlets dispersed by Dyke Action Machine (DAM!), the radical, queer activist project which Moyer co-founded. This is the artist’s first solo show in Texas. Carrie Moyer will be in attendance. 

One Night Only is a national curatorial project by artist Arthur Peña. Previous One Night Only celebrations include Nicole Eisenman (NY) and Jay Stuckey (LA). One Night Only currently resides in a historic, private residence in Dallas, TX. One Night Only is an inclusive endeavor during divisive times.

Artist talk: Tony Matelli

10:30 am - 11:30 am
Nasher Sculpture Center, 2001 Flora Street, Dallas, 75201

Nasher Sculpture Center, 2001 Flora Street, Dallas, 75201
American sculptor Tony Matelli unsettled tourists when his nearly-nude, eerily lifelike Sleepwalker was installed on the repurposed railroad of New York City’s High Line in 2016. Eyes closed, mouth agape, and arms reaching forward, the man’s skin appeared to be real flesh rather than its actuality—painted bronze. Matelli uses materials and vernacular associated with antiquity, blended with the contemporary, to create uncannily realistic sculptures that are hard to pinpoint in time. Faux bronze fruit, hot dog weiners, crab legs, and sliced bread, each painted with impeccable detail, casually rest upon figurative concrete sculptures and busts.
For Dallas Art Month and the Dallas Art Fair, his sculptures will be on view throughout The Joule’s common areas. To celebrate, he will present a talk delving into his process.

Panel Discussion sponsored by Foley Gardere

4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Beck Imaginarium, 1807 Ross Avenue, Dallas, 75201

Cultural Reckoning: An Exploration of Recent Social Movements and Their Impacts on the Art World
Please join Foley Gardere for a cocktail reception, followed by a panel discussion on how institutions, galleries, artists, and collectors are responding to recent social and cultural critiques. Growing awareness of the lack of representation of women and artists of color is forcing the art world to question its own structural biases and forms of discrimination. According to a joint investigation by In Other Words and artnet News, less than 3% of museum acquisitions over the past decade have been of work by African American artists, and, according to the National Museum of Women in the Arts, just 5% of artwork featured in major U.S. museums is made by women, while only 25-35% of women artists have gallery representation. This panel will address institutional accountability and the recognition of careers that have been overlooked, tackling questions such as: what are the cultural implications of museums, art fairs and galleries targeting specific quotas of representation for African American and women artists? To what extent are the current cultural upwellings cyclical, and are we on a collective path towards balanced exhibitions going forward? What is an effective long-term strategy for achieving race and gender equity in the art world?

Participants include: Dr. Agustín Arteaga, Eugene McDermott Director at Dallas Museum of Art; lauren woods, artist and visiting lecturer at SMU Meadows School of the Arts; Geoff Green, collector; and Laurie Farrell, Senior Curator at Dallas Contemporary.
