We stopped by the @dallascontemporary and got to experience the amazing work of artist John Currin. Currin’s “My Life as a Man,” exhibition showcases eclectic depictions of masculinity and the evolution of his work from the 90s to now. You can catch this exhibit on display until Dec. 22 at the Dallas Contemporary. Check it out and tag us when you go!
Honored to join the team at #dallascontemporary as deputy director—DC is a visionary in presenting challenging ideas from both local and global perspectives through art of our time.
I also could not be happier to return to the #DFW area where I spent my university years and contribute to the cultural landscape of one of the most vibrant and fastest growing metro areas in the nation.

Big thank you to @dallascontemporary for allowing me to lead this past weekend's "Draw With Us" figure drawing session. The event lasted 3 hours long and was free to the public.
It was great working with the models and artists with a variety of exercises.
We are delighted to have supported Turner Prize nominee Ian Davenport’s exhibition at Dallas Contemporary, ‘Horizons’, which is open from now until March 2019. ‘Horizons’ provides a rare chance to see the range of Ian’s work across decades (including ‘Colourfall’ from the Venice Biennale) and the opportunity to walk amongst so many of these immersive, massive works in the industrial space of @dallascontemporary, curated beautifully by museum director Peter Doroshenko. ⠀
The exhibition begins with an early work from his student days at Goldsmiths, up to recent work made specifically for the museum space. As Ian and Peter walk through the exhibition in the hours before the opening, they reveal the scale of the work and the range of Ian’s practice. They also discuss ‘Instagrammable’ moments, his work from the Venice Biennale and how light and color work together. This is just a portion of the topics they covered in their conversation, to watch the full film please visit our YouTube Channel.⠀
