DallasSITES: Charting Contemporary Art, 1963 to Present is an exhibition celebrating the history of North Texas's bold and distinctive art scene. Looking back over fifty years, DallasSITES examines the moments, people, and organizations that helped shape our area's incredibly vital relationship with contemporary art. So often relegated to the art world's "third coast," North Texans created opportunities from this peripheral status by working in ways that can be described as uniquely Texan, while capturing and maintaining the attention of the national and international art communities.
The DMA will also host a monthlong experimental project space, titled DallasSITES: Available Space, from July 19 through August 18, 2013, in its contemporary art galleries. Viewed as a companion to the historical exhibition, Available Space foregrounds the current state of contemporary art in North Texas by tapping select artists, curators, collectives, and art educators from the community to program unique and innovative projects in the DMA's galleries.
Attendance figure includes both Hotel Texas and DallasSITES.
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.
