The ninth edition of the Dallas Art Fair takes place April 6–9 at the Fashion Industry Gallery. Over 90 galleries will participate this year, including more than 30 new additions like leading international dealers such as Gagosian, Lehmann Maupin, Simon Lee Gallery, Skarstedt Gallery, Shane Campbell Gallery, Peter Blum Gallery, Albertz Benda, Hannah Hoffman Gallery, and Karma. With the strongest international lineup to date, the fair’s Preview Gala will benefit local institutional partners the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA), Dallas Contemporary, and the Nasher Sculpture Center.
Now in its second year, the Dallas Art Fair Foundation Acquisition Program, in partnership with the DMA, will see funds of $100,000 going toward selecting new art for the museum’s collection directly from the fair floor. “The diversification and growth of our roster is a testament to the strength of the City’s burgeoning collector community,” said Dallas Art Fair co-founder John Sughrue. Dallas-based galleries of note participating in the fair include AND NOW, Erin Cluley Gallery, Barry Whistler Gallery, Cris Worley Fine Arts, and Conduit Gallery.
