Isa Genzken

2019 Nasher Prize Laureate is Isa Genzken

With a career spanning four decades, Isa Genzken has continually reinvented the language of sculpture by creating objects inspired by popular culture and historical events that explore the complexities of contemporary realism. Engaging a diverse range of media such as wood, plaster, concrete, textiles, and detritus and working in a variety of modes, including sculpture, photography, filmmaking, painting, drawing, and collage, Genzken transforms vernacular materials into wholly unique forms. Her inventive, ad hoc approach to making, as well as her fearless embrace of chaos and change, has inspired a generation of artists, even as she continues to adapt, expand, and redefine her protean oeuvre.  

Exhibition

February 2, 2019 – April 21, 2019

First U.S. Museum Exhibition of Work by Günther Förg in Nearly Three Decades Will Debut at the Dallas Museum of Art in October 2018

The Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) announced its presentation of the most comprehensive survey to date for renowned German artist Günther Förg (1952-2013), opening on October 21, 2018 and on view through January 27, 2019. The first American museum exhibition dedicated to the artist in nearly three decades, Günther Förg: A Fragile Beauty, brings together over 40 years of  the artist’s multimedia practice – including work on paper, photography, sculpture, and rarely-exhibited late-career paintings –  to provide new insight on the practice and enduring influence of this extraordinary and complex artist.

Organized in collaboration with the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and their curator of photography Hripsimé Visser, in close dialogue with the artist’s estate, Günther Förg: A Fragile Beauty builds on both institutions’ histories with the artist, with each having staged seminal exhibitions of his work in 1992 and 1995 respectively. The exhibition includes major loans from private collections and notable German institutions such as the Städel Museum, Frankfurt and the Staatliche Graphische Sammlung, Munich.

At the Beach: Mariano Fortuny y Marsal and William Merritt Chase 

Jun. 24-Sep. 23, 2018

The Meadows Museum, SMU, has acquired Beach at Portici, the last painting of famed Spanish artist Mariano Fortuny y Marsal (1838-1874). The nearly finished painting—which is unusual for its large scale, relative to much of the artist’s work—depicts the enjoyment of a summer day at the beach, and demonstrates Fortuny’s hallmark ability to capture light in paint. Fortuny was an especially popular artist with 19th-century American collectors and audiences, as the particularly American provenance of this work reveals. Reflecting the high esteem in which Fortuny’s works were held, Beach at Portici was featured prominently in the American Pavilion’s “Loan Collection of Foreign Masterpieces Owned in the United States” at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Considered one of the most important international exhibitions of the 19th century, these works were selected to show off to the Fair’s wide audiences— more than 27 million people visited during its six-month run—the richness and breadth of paintings owned by American collectors and museums, and implicitly, American economic prowess, and refined taste in fine art.

Beach at Portici will be on view at the Meadows Museum beginning January 19, 2018. From June 24 through September 23, it will be the subject of a focused exhibition, At the Beach: Mariano Fortuny y Marsal and William Merritt Chase, where it will be paired with a loan from the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, Chase’s Idle Hours (c. 1894). The Spanish artist had a significant impact on many important American artists and perhaps especially on Chase, who knew his work well and greatly admired it.

The Polaroid Project: At the Intersection of Art and Technology
June 3–September 3, 2017


The Polaroid Project
surveys the history of the innovative photographic company Polaroid and its intersection with art, science and technology during the second-half of the 20th century. Featuring a wide-ranging group of artists, the exhibition showcases the diversity of works produced over several decades. Organized by the Foundation for the Exhibition of Photography, The Polaroid Project displays a variety of image sizes and formats produced over the years and the rich legacy of technological and artistic experimentation that the company enabled prior to its obsolescence.

 

Events:

Artist Talk with Gabriel Dawe and curator Maggie Adler

They will discuss his artwork, process, inspiration, and the installation of Plexus no. 34.

 

Gallery Talk with Kevin Vogel
April 27, 6:30–7:30 p.m.

President of Valley House Gallery & Sculpture Garden and Fine Art Estate will present a talk in conjunction with the exhibition Invented Worlds of Valton Tyler.

Artist Talk with Ellen Carey
June 15, 6:30–7:30 p.m.
In conjunction with the special exhibition The Polaroid Project, artist Ellen Carey will discuss her experimental work with Polaroid from the 1970s to the present.

Between the Lines: Gego as Printmaker

Through August 6, 2017
From zigzags and curves to diagonals and scribbles, this small exhibition of prints by abstract artist Gego (1912–1994) celebrates the vibrant diversity of line. While primarily known as a kinetic sculptor, Gego explored the printing process’s potential for creating intricate linear patterns while working at the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles in 1966.

Drawn from the Amon Carter’s collection, these richly saturated lithographs reflect Gego’s interest in the intersection between line and space. Her choice of dramatic blacks and reds, contrasted with the lightly colored paper sheet, highlights the images generated by negative space, or what Gego called, “the nothing between the lines.”

 

Avedon in Texas: Selections from In the American West
Through July 2, 2017

When renowned New York City fashion and portrait photographer Richard Avedon (1923–2004) agreed in late 1978 to take on a commission from the Amon Carter to create a portrait of the American West through its people, he was filled with uncertainty about whether the project would succeed. The following spring he went to the Rattlesnake Round-Up in Sweetwater, Texas. That weekend he created six evocative portraits that would set the tone and bar for five more years of photographing. In these sittings, he discovered people who conveyed through their faces, clothes and postures, not merely hard living but the full embrace of existence. This selection of 17 of the project’s Texas images makes abundantly clear why In the American West has become a touchstone in photographic history.

 

Homer and Remington in Black and White

Through July 2, 2017
Winslow Homer (1836–1910) and Frederic Remington (1861–1909) were among the most accomplished American artists of their day. While they both personally measured the success of their careers by the recognition they received from critics and patrons for their oil paintings, they likely would never have obtained the status of American greats without their mutual involvement in the world of illustration. Wide distribution in the leading periodicals of the day assured that they became household names. Both artists learned how to communicate clearly and concisely in black and white, distilling the essence of a scene into a few sharp elements. This exhibition features works from the Amon Carter’s permanent collection that represent the variety of their creations in black and white.

 

Fluid Expressions: The Prints of Helen Frankenthaler

March 18–September 10, 2017
Although widely known for her iconic “soak-stain” canvases, Helen Frankenthaler (1928–2011) was an equally inventive printmaker who took risks in a medium not frequently explored by abstract expressionists. Fluid Expressions: The Prints of Helen Frankenthaler highlights the artist’s often-overlooked, yet highly original and whimsical print production.

Drawn from the collections of Jordan D. Schnitzer and his Family Foundation, this exhibition includes more than 25 prints made from a diverse range of techniques, including lithographs, etchings, aquatints, screen prints and woodcuts.

 

Darryl Lauster: Trace
March 25, 2017–March 25, 2018
For his sculptural installation Trace, Texas-based artist Darryl Lauster (b. 1969) created 10 fragmentary Carrara marble tablets and carved phrases in them using a font reminiscent of monuments. The blocks of stone seemingly speak essential truths—such as language from American founding documents, various militia and splinter group manifestos, and parts of the inscription on the Statue of Liberty—uniting fundamental phrases intended for entirely different purposes and obscuring their original meanings. Because the stones appear to be broken pieces of a full inscription, any overarching meaning is difficult to discern, much as many of the texts in their entirety are subject to differing interpretations. Trace asks us to wonder whether what we are reading is from a separatist group, Darwin, or the Bill of Rights. His work engages with contemporary society while using historical language.

 

Nature/Culture

July 15–December 10, 2017
We often think of nature as that which stands beyond humanity and culture as that which reflects people’s achievements. But rarely is the matter so simple. This exhibition explores different facets of the dichotomy. Besides reflecting on how nature counterpoints and enlivens our built environment, the show recognizes the more problematic use of the term, and its cousin “natural,” when applied to snapshots, portraits and Native American cultures.

 

Dornith Doherty: Archiving Eden

August 12, 2017–January 14, 2018
Over the last nine years, North Texas photographer Dornith Doherty has traveled the globe to construct a visual meditation on the planet’s botanical diversity by showcasing the work of international seed banks and sharing the pure aesthetic pleasure of seeds and their transformations into plants. This exhibition celebrates the completion of that project. At a time when some ecologists are suggesting that we are losing more than 10 animal and plant species each day, the display provides eloquent confirmation of the close relationship between botany and biophilia.

 

Caught on Paper

September 23, 2017–February 11, 2018
From giving something your “best shot” to feeling like a “fish out of water,” metaphors and imagery from the sport of hunting and fishing permeate American culture. Inspired by the coinciding exhibition of painting and sculpture Wild Spaces Open Seasons: Hunting and Fishing in American Art, this selection of works on paper explores the popular outdoor subjects that have captivated American artists for centuries.

Caught on Paper brings together more than 30 works on paper from the Amon Carter’s permanent collection. With watercolors and prints by artists such as Winslow Homer, Buffalo Meat, Frederic Remington, Charles M. Russell and Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait, this show is truly a rare catch.

Meadows Museum

The four lectures in this series examine the world and work of the Spanish-born artist Jusepe de Ribera (1591–1652), who is the subject of the upcoming Meadows Museum exhibition Between Heaven and Hell: The Drawings of Jusepe de Ribera. By carefully analyzing specific artworks by Ribera and his contemporaries, the lectures situate Ribera within the broader context of the global Iberian empire, in which his chosen hometown of Naples played an integral role. Some of the themes examined include Ribera’s confrontation with the legacy of Caravaggio and Domenichino, his penchant for violent scenes of martyrdom and suffering, the appeal of his stark realism, and his creation of images that were both effective religious objects and cutting-edge contemporary artworks. Coffee and pastries are served in the Founders Room before each lecture, from 10 to 10:25 a.m. This program is made possible by gifts from The Fannie and Stephen Kahn Charitable Foundation and The Eugene McDermott Foundation.

CROW COLLECTION OF ASIAN ART PREMIERES LANDSCAPE RELATIVITIES: THE COLLABORATIVE WORKS OF ARNOLD CHANG AND MICHAEL CHERNEY FEB. 25-JUNE 25, 2017

Organized by the Crow Collection in Dallas, this exhibition blurs the lines between photography and the art of Chinese ink painting

The collaborative works of a renowned painter and an acclaimed photographer are the focus of Landscape Relativities: The Collaborative Works of Arnold Chang and Michael Cherney. The Crow Collection of Asian Art in Dallas will premiere the exhibition Feb. 25 – June 25, 2017 in its Gallery One exhibition space in the Dallas Arts District.

In this exhibition, painter Arnold Chang (Zhang Hong; b. 1954) and photographer Michael Cherney (Qiu Mai; b. 1969) stretch and play with the relationship between the two media of painting and photography and the history and principles of Chinese ink painting. The exhibition – organized by the Crow Collection of Asian Art and curated by Dr. Jacqueline Chao, the Crow Collection’s Curator of Asian Art – will feature a selection of both their individual works along with new collaborative pieces to be exhibited publicly for the first time.

Modern Spanish Art from the Asociación Colección Arte Contemporáneo
October 9, 2016-January 29, 2017

Modern Spanish Art from the Asociación Colección Arte Contemporáneo is the first exhibition in America to present a comprehensive survey of modern art in Spain during the first half of the twentieth century. The rich and diverse art created by Spanish artists during this period is largely unknown in the US due in part to the turmoil that took place in Spain at this time. Displaying highlights from the extensive modern art collection of the Asociación Colección Arte Contemporáneo (ACAC) with works from the Meadows Museum, this exhibition brings together more than 90 paintings, sculptures, and works on paper to demonstrate the most important aspects of modern Spanish art and shed light on the global connection between Spanish art and other international modern art movements.

Islamic Art Revival Series

We believe that art is a Universal Language. We are passionate about Islamic art as a translator and connector across generations and cultures. From heart to heart, through time.

Through our Islamic Art events we promote education in the arts of the Islamic world and encourage vibrant cross-cultural exchange amongst all faiths and cultures. In doing so, we build cultural bridges between the Islamic cultures and rest of the world.
