Driven by her curiosity and the art of the impossible, she has been a driving force behind a host of visionary initiatives that support institutions and communities in both the for profit and non-profit sectors.

Nasher Sculpture Center Exhibition Opening – Sightings: Bettina Pousttchi
6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Nasher Sculpture Center, 2001 Flora Street, Dallas, 75201
For the past 15 years, Bettina Pousttchi has created artworks in a variety of media including photography, video, and sculpture. These works often examine the constructed nature and tenuousness of memory. Two recent projects, Echo (2009-10) at the Temporäre Kunsthalle in Berlin and Framework (2011) at Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt, presented photography at the scale of architecture, lending it a sense of monumentality and presence normally associated with large-scale sculpture. In the Spring of 2014, Pousttchi continues her exploration of these issues with a site-specific installation at the Nasher Sculpture Center.
Contact the Nasher Sculpture Center at 214.242.5151 or visit www.nashersculpturecenter.org.

Dallas Contemporary Exhibition Opening – Richard Phillips, Julian Schnabel
9:00 p.m. – 12:00 a.m.
Dallas Contemporary, 161 Glass Street, Dallas, 75207
Dallas Contemporary presents major exhibitions by American artists Richard Phillips and Julian Schnabel in conjunction with Dallas Arts Week.

As an institution presenting challenging projects on a local, national and international level, Dallas Contemporary is pleased to organize Richard Phillips’ first museum exhibition in the United States. Phillips has challenged the formal structures of painting with a career spanning more than twenty years. Comprised of significant paintings, sculptures and video work from 1997 to the present, this seminal exhibition is a turning point for the Dallas community and beyond.

Painter, sculptor, writer and Academy Award nominated filmmaker, Julian Schnabel will present a body of monumental paintings layered in an assortment of materials, surfaces and subject matter. Schnabel integrates a cinematic intuition into his paintings, carefully composing works with compelling narratives. By fabricating and staging his own reality in a single work, Schnabel takes complete control, contrasting banal situations and a subliminal world of conflict.

CHIT CHAT with Exhibition Artist Julian Schnabel
10:00 a.m.
Dallas Contemporary, 161 Glass Street, Dallas, 75207
Julian Schnabel is a painter, sculptor, writer and Academy Award nominated filmmaker. As a film director, Schnabel integrates a cinematic intuition into his paintings, carefully composing works with compelling narratives. At first glance, his works seem to be decisive moments in a larger narrative, captured and frozen, but the surrounding story remains exclusive to the viewer. By fabricating and staging his own reality in a single work, Schnabel takes complete control, contrasting banal situations and a subliminal world of conflict.

 

CHIT CHAT with Exhibition Artist Richard Phillips
11:30 a.m.
Dallas Contemporary, 161 Glass Street, Dallas, 75207
In his first US solo museum exhibition, Richard Phillips brings his exploration of contemporary culture to Dallas. His strikingly distinctive paintings address the complex web of pop themes in our media-saturated world – sexuality, politics, power and death among them. For Phillips, critique is as much an intrinsic material in the conception and staging of his work as the materials of their making. His conflating of subject and genre continues to provide challenging comment on the condition and reach of contemporary art.

 

A Fête in Dallas (Fêtes révolutionnaires and utopia, science fiction and architecture, ant trails and gila monsters)
1:00 p.m.
Fashion Industry Gallery (f.i.g.), 1807 Ross Avenue, Dallas, 75201
Working together in Paris since 2000, Louise Hervé and Chloé Maillet have created an artistic practice that centers on the act of narration. Their stories bring together historical facts, fiction and new realities and take the form of film, installation and discussion. The resulting work is a mixture of lecture, performance and conferences. Hervé and Maillet’s method, described as an ‘archaeology of knowledge,’ combines scientific discourse with personal commentary.
During the Dallas Art Fair, Hervé and Maillet will lead a tour through the Arts District creating a fictional context as they wander through the F.I.G. green space, the Dallas Museum of Art’s Sculpture Garden, and the Crow Collection of Asian Art. The hour-long tour will begin at the main entrance of Fashion Industry Gallery (f.i.g.) at 1:00 p.m.

In 2015, Tobolowsky’s work will be featured in an international exhibition at the National Academy of Art in New Delhi, India. At SMU, he earned an undergraduate business degree with a minor in sculpture as well as a law degree, while studying with James Surls and Louise Nevelson.

Already, more than 100 cultural districts are rising from the ground or in the planning stages around the globe.

Folding Paper: Visual Art Meets Mathematics
4:30 p.m.
Dallas Contemporary, 161 Glass Street, Dallas, 75207
Erik and Martin Demaine, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology blur the lines between art and mathematics by freely moving from designing sculpture to proving theorems and back again. Erik Demaine received a MacArthur Fellowship as a “computational geometer tackling and solving difficult problems related to folding and bending— moving readily between the theoretical and the playful, with a keen eye for revealing the former in the latter”. He appears in the recent origami documentary Between the Folds, co-wrote a book about the theory of folding (Geometric Folding Algorithms), and wrote a book about the computational complexity of games (Games, Puzzles, and Computation). Erik and his father Martin have created curved-crease sculptures, which are now part of the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Renwick Gallery in the Smithsonian.
