How great it feels to be returning to Dallas this April to launch the second annual edition of Whitewaller Dallas! We’re so excited to have the wonderful Tina Craig participating again as guest editor as well.
This year, the Dallas Art Fair returns with a slew of surrounding events that started with the MTV:REDEFINE gala and auction. We checked in with Kenny Goss and Joyce Goss about this successful philanthropic event, as well as the Billy Childish show on view at The Goss-Michael Foundation.
Dallas’s museums and institutions are some of our favorites in the country, and so it was a pleasure speaking with the Nasher Sculpture Center’s director, Jeremy Strick, about the second Nasher Prize laureate, Pierre Huyghe. The Dallas Museum of Art has a new director, Agustín Arteaga, curating his first exhibition for the museum, a survey of avant-garde Mexican art from 1900 to 1950.
If you’re in town for the fair, it’s worth a trip to the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, where you can find new pattern paintings by Katherine Bernhardt. Over in West Dallas, you’ll find the city’s emerging art scene, with artists’ studios, hip restaurants and shops, and Erin Cluley Gallery.
And as with every issue of Whitewaller, don’t miss our Insider Tips section. There you’ll find out where those who truly know Dallas—Christen Wilson, Moll Anderson, Chris Byrne, Cindy and Howard Rachofsky, Justine Ludwig, Muriel Quancard, Rob Teeters, Terri Provencal, James Cope, and Brian Bolke—go for the best meals, sips, shows, and after-hours activities.
