Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
Located in Dallas’ dynamic downtown Arts District at the Fashion Industry Gallery, the Dallas Art Fair, founded eight years ago by John Sughrue and Chris Byrne, keeps growing and becoming more successful each year.
This year, about 100 galleries from all over the world were present. It is a young and dynamic art fair that is turning Dallas into a cultural presence, with quality artworks exhibited, as well as new projects and initiatives, like the new Acquisition Program that will allow the Dallas Art Museum to add new artworks to its collection with the help of the Dallas Art Fair Foundation.
Beside galleries like Marlborough, Bortolami, Massimo De Carlo, or Perrotin, a few other booths caught our eye. Steve Turner showed work by three emerging artists: Yung Jake‘s videos, Michael Staniak‘s large colorful “sky-look-alike” pieces, and Rafael Rozendaal’s “couture” artwork that was “Gmail-inspired.”
De Buck gallery added a psychedelic touch to the fair with optic LED installations by German artist Hans Kotter. 10 Hanover gallery from London showed a beautiful gold painting by Swiss artist John Armleder, as well as three blue sculptures by Ai Weiwei. Louise Alexander gallery from Porto Cervo exhibited a large selection of works by :mentalKLINIK, Jay Shinn, and Arik Levy.
