Presented by the Dallas Architecture Forum

Nasher Hall, Nasher Sculpture Center

Speakers:
Jenny MOORE, Director, Chinati Foundation
Joseph THOMPSON, Founding Director, MASS MoCA

Moderated Conversation with Ms. Moore, Mr. Thompson and
Jeremy STRICK, Director, Nasher Sculpture Center

Join the Dallas Architecture Forum for an afternoon focused on how the Chinati Foundation and MASS MoCA, two highly acclaimed centers for contemporary art, have repurposed abandoned spaces to create innovative and internationally recognized centers for the display of art. These museums have created opportunities for visitors to interact with art – in unusual and unique settings – in dramatic yet intimate ways. The Forum’s 2017 Design Symposium will present Chinati Director Jenny Moore and MASS MoCA Director Joseph Thompson in compelling conversation as they each overview their organizations. They’ll discuss how their sites were repurposed for the display of art, with emphasis on how the size of their venues provide opportunities to present art at a scale and scope not possible in most conventional art museums. Ms. Moore and Mr. Thompson will discuss highlights of the significant collections on display at their museums. Ms. Moore will also overview the new master plan recently completed for Chinati, while Mr. Thompson will highlight the major MASS MoCA campus expansion that opened this year.

CULTURAL DEVELOPMENTS IN DALLAS

Richard BRETTELL, Ph. D in conversation with Mark LAMSTER

10 October 2017
Tuesday, 7 pm, with informal reception and check-in beginning at 6:15 pm
Horchow Auditorium, Dallas Museum of Art

The last two decades have seen dramatic developments in the cultural fabric of North Texas. In Dallas, the Arts District saw the addition of the Nasher Sculpture Center, the Wyly Theater, the Winspear Opera House, the Moody (formerly City) Performance Hall, and the completion of the Booker T. Washington campus. Fort Worth has added the Modern Art Museum and the Piano Pavilion at the Kimbell among its new signature buildings.

Much has happened besides the completion of these signature buildings. Galleries, artist labs, new musical and theatrical organizations have also come into existence or increased their reach across North Texas. Academic centers such as UT-Dallas and non-profits such as The Dallas Architecture Forum have expanded their cultural reach and raised awareness and dialogue on issues important to all of us. In addition to the Arts District in Dallas and the Cultural District in Fort Worth, there are emerging centers of creative activity across many North Texas cities. Join us for a lively discussion with Rick Brettell and Mark Lamster as we examine some of these major accomplishments over the last twenty years. Dr. Brettell and Mr. Lamster will also discuss what needs to occur over the next two decades to enhance the arts and cultural opportunities for all North Texas residents.
