"With a poet's eye and a devotional attitude toward technical refinement, Jim Hodges remains a signal figure." - Artforum
The DMA is the premiere venue for the major traveling exhibition and the first comprehensive survey to be organized in the United States on the work of contemporary American artist Jim Hodges, a former TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art honoree. Co-organized by the Dallas Museum of Art and the Walker Art Center, Jim Hodges: Give More Than You Take explores the artist's twenty-five-year career, highlighting the major themes that unify his multilayered and varied practice. The exhibition presents eighty works produced from 1987 through the present, and will feature the DMA's and still this, 2005-2008, acquired with the DMA/amfAR Benefit Auction Fund, as a highlight of the four-city national tour.
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.
