The Dallas Art Fair is pleased to announce that its 13th annual edition will take place November 11-14, when it will once again host the best international and local contemporary art dealers at the Fashion Industry Gallery (f.i.g.).
“After more than 18 months of uncertainty, we cannot stress enough how happy we are to finally reopen our doors in the fall. People are eager to see art in person and revitalize the creative economy, so we will do everything possible to make that experience safe for our collectors, dealers, and visitors this November,” said Dallas Art Fair Director Kelly Cornell.
This year’s fair will feature a major off-site public art installation by Brooklyn-based social practice artist Caledonia Curry, better known as Swoon, who is celebrated for her community-based projects and influence on fellow women street artists. In 2020, in collaboration with PBS American Portrait, Swoon transformed a 14-foot box truck into The House Our Families Built: a fantastical, mobile sculptural “house” that portrays scenes of domestic life and asks viewers to consider their own ancestral histories. Presented by Santa Fe’s Turner Carroll Gallery, the installation will be on view at Klyde Warren Park for the duration of the fair. Since its creation, Swoon’s installation has only been seen in New York City and in a presentation by Turner Carroll Gallery in Santa Fe in May 2021; this will be the first time it is shown in Texas.
For the 13th edition, Dallas Art Fair will welcome more than 60 prominent national and international art galleries exhibiting the most dynamic voices influencing contemporary art and culture. Offering a range of works, including painting, sculpture, works on paper, photography, video and installation by modern and contemporary artists, Dallas Art Fair holds a unique role in the art fair circuit, nationally and beyond. The Fair draws established and aspiring art collectors, enthusiasts, and museum groups from around the world.
