The sixth iteration of the Museum’s Concourse mural series will feature an installation by Houston-based artist Tiffany Chung, who is internationally known for her diverse conceptual work and research-driven process dealing with sociopolitical issues. Contending with issues of conflict, migration, urban progress, and transformation in relation to history and cultural memory, Chung’s practice endeavors to document and discuss the micro, hidden histories—the memory and experiences of ordinary people—that counterbalance the grand narratives produced by the state. Her commissioned mural will center narratives of migration and movement, especially those found within Dallas, in recognition and celebration of these lived experiences.
Admission is FREE.
Tiffany Chung is organized by the Dallas Museum of Art. The Dallas Museum of Art is supported, in part, by the generosity of DMA Members and donors, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Texas Commission on the Arts, and the citizens of Dallas through the City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture.
