April 14, 2013 @ Fashion Industry Gallery, Dallas
The fifth edition of the Dallas Art Fair took place over the weekend in the city's arts district, with 83 national and international galleries exhibiting a range of modern and contemporary art in nearly every medium. "We've built the fair incrementally, and this year we added more international galleries; a group of younger galleries from New York and L.A.; and SEVEN, a collective project of galleries at the Dallas Contemporary," fair cofounder Chris Byrne told A.i.A.
Dallas was abuzz with related art and design openings and events. The Power Station presented an a experimental collaboration between Tobias Madison, Emanuel Rossetti and Stefan Tcherepnin; the Nasher Sculpture Center showed big, ironic bronzes by Nathan Mabry; the Goss-Michael Foundation featured energetic paintings by up-and-coming British artist Dan Rees; Dallas Contemporary displayed an art-meets-fashion installation by Belgian designer Walter Van Bierendonck; and the Dallas Museum of Art's annual Art Ball celebrated the DMA's decision to offer free general admission. —Paul Laster
