These items, together with the… Read more

Artist Lecture and Performance

Explore the combination of photography and sound during this artist lecture and performance inspired by the special exhibition Border Cantos: Richard Misrach | Guillermo Galindo. Photographer Richard Misrach will discuss his process, influence, and experiences when creating the large-scale photographs of the border between the U.S and Mexico featured in the exhibition. Then, artist-musician Guillermo Galindo will play musical instruments (also on display in the exhibition) that he created out of artifacts found along the border, and will be accompanied by performer Amy X Neuburg.

Following the program, both Misrach and Galindo will be available to sign the project publication, Border Cantos, for sale at the Museum Store.

This program on American art, culture, and society is made possible by a generous gift from the late Anne Burnett Tandy.

Abstract Texas: Midcentury Modern Painting

This exhibition presents the work of some of Texas’s most significant contributors to mid-twentieth century modernism—Jack Boynton, Ben L. Culwell, Seymour Fogel, Michael Frary, George Grammer, Robert O. Preusser, and Donald Weismann. Although geographically isolated from the progressive cultural environments of New York City and Los Angeles, these artists pioneered their own abstract styles that reflect their independent ambitions within the Lone Star State.

In the early 1940s, when abstract expressionists in New York City were revolutionizing the art world by painting… Read more

American Photographs, 1845 to Now

American Photographs, 1845 to Now brings together more than 70 photographs drawn from the Amon Carter’s permanent collection.

Covering 170 years of photography’s history, from unique daguerreotype portraits to large-scale contemporary works, the exhibition provides a glance at photography’s central role in recording the people, places, and events that have come to define… Read more

Gabriel Dawe: Plexus no. 34

The Amon Carter has commissioned a large-scale, site-specific installation of more than eighty miles of multicolored thread by internationally celebrated Mexican-born, Dallas-based artist Gabriel Dawe.

Words cannot do justice to the transformative power of Dawe’s sculptural marvels, which he weaves from thousands of thin strands. They look like frozen light and Technicolor vaporous mist, drawing attention to the majestic architecture and natural light of the museum’s Atrium, designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson. The Amon Carter will be the home of Plexus no. 34 Read more

Sam Francis: Prints

An avid printmaker, Sam Francis (1923–1994) combined loose strokes and splatters to create vibrant lithographs that pop with color and pulse with energy.

An injury during a World War II test flight resulted in Francis’s hospitalization for several years. It was during his recovery that he began making art. Later he would become a world traveler, visiting France, Indonesia, Japan, and Thailand, among other locales. His artistic models ranged from Abstract Expressionism to Surrealism, while literature, science, Eastern philosophy and religion, and the psychoanalytic theories of Carl… Read more
