If you’re always on the lookout for new and exciting things to do, consider spending a day at the Dallas Museum of Art. Exhibits change every few months, allowing you the opportunity to enjoy new pieces of art throughout the year. So come check out these upcoming exhibits; after all, the museum is only a short drive from your home here at the Radius at Turtle Creek.
Concentrations 61 (September 30, 2018 to February 17, 2019)
Come and discover Runo Lagomarsino, an Italian/Argentine artist whose debut collection, Concentrations 61, is a landmark in geographic and political conversational pieces. In this collection, Lagomarsino has taken a series of common, unremarkable objects and reinvented them to have a deeper historical meaning, with considerable thought given to how national identities are anything but static. This exhibit will feature two galleries, the first focusing on neo-imperialism influences while the second aims to promote discussion about the profound political unrest in the world today.
Cult of the Machine: Precisionism and American Art (September 16, 2018 to January 6, 2019)
Featuring a number of different artists, including Georgia O’Keeffe, Charles Demuth, and Paul Strand, this exhibit combines both paintings and photographic works that concentrate on how machines and new technology drastically changed the visual landscape of the United States. The pieces from the collection are notably geometric and have a decidedly precise and structured look to them, which speaks to the time period between 1910 and 1945 when this boom in machinery took place.
Günther Förg: A Fragile Beauty (October 21, 2018 to January 27, 2019)
It’s been almost 30 years since a museum in the United States has had a large collection of Günther Förg’s work displayed, so if you are a fan or just curious about his work, be sure to plan a visit starting in October. Förg is best known for being one of a group of young artists that went against the grain when it came to traditional painting styles in the 1980’s. Putting together a display of his work for present-day audiences is sure to garner renewed interest in reviewing his works as they pertain to many topics founded in the 20th century.
Spending a day at the Dallas Museum of Art is only one fun way to spend a day when you’re loving life at the Radius of Turtle Creek community. If you’d like to schedule a tour or find out more information, please contact us!Back to all posts
