5 Art Events for Your Weekend

A trio of new exhibits at the Dallas Contemporary top the weekend's art offerings.

The Kimbell On Fleek – An Exhibit by Ricardo Paniagua at Artes de la Rosa Cultural Center for Arts at the Rose Marine TheaterJanuary 15, 6-9 p.m. 1440 N. Main St. Fort Worth, TX 76164.

In this never exhibited body of work from 2009, Ricardo Paniagua uses reclaimed, billboard-sized advertisements for an Impressionism exhibition at the Kimbell Art Museum, which he has cut, manipulated, painted on, and otherwise appropriated.

 

Clayton Skidmore: Cleaning House at Homeland SecurityJanuary 15, 6-9 p.m. 1715 Gould St. Dallas, TX 75215.

The blurred nature of Homeland Security’s domestic/public art space is the basis of Clayton Skidmore’s exploration of institutional power and architectural resonance. Skidmore is an artist from Dallas who is currently pursuing his MFA at Cornell.

 

Becoming Colette Art Exhibit at The Reading Room January 16, 6-9 p.m. 3715 Parry Ave. Dallas,  TX 75226.

Colette Copeland’s videos at The Reading Room explore real settings in Paris where an  imagined character with the artist’s own name lived in the early part of the 20th century. It is work that blurs art making and storytelling, reality and fiction.

 

Sarah Williams: Are Codes | Joseph Havel: Spill at Talley Dunn GalleryJanuary 16, 6-8 p.m.

Often depicting night scenes populated with roadside signs or unremarkable buildings or houses, Sarah Williams’ paintings employ an Edward Hopper-like use of light and suggestive emptiness, and they find themselves similarly interested in the way the vacant American landscape can be simultaneously banal and beautiful. Her show opens alongside Houston artist Joseph Havel‘s conceptually tangy sculpture.

 

Black Sheep Feminism | Aura Satz | Jeff Zilm at the Dallas ContemporaryJanuary 16, 7-10 p.m. 161 Glass St. Dallas, TX 75207.

The first major exhibition of 2016 at the Dallas Contemporary features a trio of highly anticipated shows, from the provocative exploration of some lesser known feminist art movements to a large survey of Jeff Zilm. For more on Zilm’s recent success, check out our Q&A.
