Lincoln Schatz’s “Cure Violence” at the Coyote Drive-In in Dallas

By Aree Gearhart

April 15, 2014

Last Tuesday, the Dallas Art Fair and Hexton Gallery came together to present a series of videos by Chicago-based artists Lincoln Schatz and Paula Crown at the Coyote Drive-In.

The evening of films began with cocktails prior to a sit down Q&A with Schatz regarding his video craft, and ending with the debut of Cure Violence. It showed Chicagoans coming together in an effort to stop gun violence in their neighborhoods. Schatz and his team traveled through Chicago’s high-crime neighborhoods hearing the accounts and stories of those deeply affected by gun violence. The project was produced to raise greater awareness, as well as serve as a foundation for others to get involved and take action toward a possible solution.

Two works by Crown, Phantasmagoria and Bearings Down, were projected afterward onto the drive-in’s prodigious screens. It was a great way to kick off the Dallas fair, and a remarkable moment to see contemporary works screened in the nostalgic setting of a drive-in.
