5 Art Events for Your Weekend

It's Two X Two weekend, which means some of Dallas' best art spaces are mounting new shows to greet the migrating arterati headed to town.

Olivier Mosset: Plan B at The Power StationOct. 23, 6-8 p.m. 3816 Commerce St. Dallas, TX 75226.

It’s Two x Two weekend, which means that like the week of the Dallas Art Fair a migrating flock from the international art world will descend on Dallas. To greet them, a number of new openings, including this one at The Power Station. Swiss artist Olivier Mosset was part of the BMPT group in the 1960s, along with Daniel Burren, Michel Parmentier, and Niele Toroni. His conceptual driven work has long been concerned with institutional, political, and aesthetic subversion.

 

Ian Kiaer at And NowOct. 23, 6-9 p.m. 1415 Beaumont St. Dallas, TX 75215.

James Cope’s rarefied And Now, the little gallery located in a tumble-down bungalow in the Cedars, continuous punches above its weight. British-born artist Ian Kiase makes art of the highly conceptual, meticulously slapdash kind, organizing little set-ups of made and found materials — – a hung canvas here, a collection of egg shells here, some bent foam over there. The result is a kind of landscape-making, or world imagining, work that blends strategies of architecture and painting to create installations that offers viewers multiple physical and conceptual points of entry.

 

New Wave at The Goss-Michael FoundationOct. 23, 6:30-8:30 p.m. 1405 Turtle Creek Blvd. Dallas, TX 75207.

The title of this show is intended to reference both the French New Wave cinema movement and the “second wave” of feminism, and it brings together a collection of woman artists who are all relatively early in their career and who employ an iconoclastic flair, both in their subject matter and medium-blending use of materials. Artist include Darja Bajagic, Nina Beier, Ida Ekblad, Shilpa Gupta, Amanda Ross-Ho, Sheida Soleimani, and Rosemarie Trockel.

 

Hidenori Ishii: The Black Lake at Erin Cluley GalleryOct. 23, 6-8 p.m. 414 Fabrication St. Dallas, TX 75212.

The Japanese-born, New York-based artist unveils a new solo exhibition consisting of painting and site specific installations that were created in reaction to the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant meltdown and its aftermath in Japan.

 

Performance as Gesture: Songs for a City Park at Kidd Springs ParkOct. 25, 5-7 p.m.  711 W. Canty Dallas, TX 75208.

Cynthia Mulcahy, who used to run the Mulcahy Modern Gallery in the Bishop Arts District way back in the day when the Bishop Arts had art, has been a driving force behind a number of socially engaged art pieces in recent years. There was a square dance at the Trinity Audubon Center, sunflowers on a vacant lot on Davis St. This weekend, there will be music in Kidd Springs Park. The performance is the culmination of a research project into the history and provenance of a Japanese garden that has been located in the park since the 1960s. For more, go here.
