In the gallery’s Cedars space, Thomas Menikos’ installation of appropriated consumer goods grapples with the fuzzy boundaries between adolescence and adulthood.

UTD’s artist residency CentralTrak kicks-off a series of panel discussions about higher education, residency programs, and the role these play in artists’ careers. This week’s discussion features H. Schenck, an artist and educator, and Thomas Riccio, performance artist and Professor of Performance and Aesthetic Studies at the University of Texas at Dallas, and it will be moderated by artist Erica Stephens.

K. Yoland: Letters Without an Address at The MACSaturday, May 7, 7-10 p.m. 1601 South Ervay St. Dallas, TX 75215.

Two exhibitions by British-born, Marfa/Dallas-dwelling artist K. Yoland open this weekend, one at the newly expanded Mac and the other at the tiny Reading Room gallery near Fair Park. A conceptually and politically astute, photographically  grounded artist, Yoland’s video at the Reading Room will correspond to her videos in the Mac’s Cedars space, which pair footage of southern Dallas with fictitious letters written in response to news reports and historical events.
