Upcoming Exhibitions

Günther Förg: A Fragile Beauty

10/21/18 to 1/27/19 | Hoffman Galleries

Günther Förg: A Fragile Beauty will survey the prolific and provocative career of the late artist Günther Förg (1952-2013). Förg was closely associated with the Cologne scene of the 1980s, a group of irreverent artists who challenged the traditions of painting. This exhibition—the first major museum presentation of his work in the United States since 1989—will bring renewed attention to Förg’s work by examining his legacy in relation to key issues of the 20th century, including postwar nostalgia and loss and the utopianism of high modernism.


From Düsseldorf to Dallas: Postwar German Art in the DMA Collection

10/21/18 to 2/17/19 | Rachofsky Quadrant Gallery

Concurrent with Günther Förg: A Fragile Beauty, the DMA will present a special installation of works by German artists in the Museum’s collection to contextualize Förg’s practice. Over the past 25 years, the Dallas Museum of Art has emerged as a leading US institution in collecting and exhibiting postwar German art. Förg was featured in the Museum’s Encounters series in 1992, and solo exhibitions of work by German artists Sigmar Polke and Thomas Struth followed in the decade to come. These years also saw the exponential growth of Museum holdings in this area. From Düsseldorf to Dallas brings together a selection of editions and paintings by Gerhard Richter, including three new acquisitions, along with works by Polke, Struth, and Jörg Immendorff.


Women + Design: New Works

10/28/18 to 2/17/19 | Lamont Quadrant Gallery

Opening this fall, Women + Design: New Works is an exhibition composed of recent works by seven contemporary female designers. It also features two newly created pieces that will go on view for the first time by Iris van Herpen and Najla El Zein. International in origin and diverse in their media, forms, and objectives, this dynamic group of emerging and mid-career female designers additionally includes Katie Collins, Carrie Dickens, Iris van Herpen, Genevieve Howard, Katie Stout, and Faye Toogood.


Ida O’Keeffe: Escaping Georgia’s Shadow

11/18/18 to 2/24/19 | Chilton I Gallery

Ida TenEyck O’Keeffe was recognized as a gifted artist during her life, but her efforts were overshadowed by those of her famous older sister, Georgia. Ida O’Keeffe: Escaping Georgia’s Shadow brings to light rediscovered works by Ida O’Keeffe that reveal she crafted an artistic identity that was distinct, in style and subject matter, from that of her celebrated sibling. This DMA-organized exhibition, the first venue of a national tour, will showcase for the first time approximately 50 works including paintings, watercolors, prints, and drawings.


Women Artists in Europe from the Monarchy to Modernism

12/22/18 to 6/9/19 | Focus II Gallery

This focus exhibition highlights artwork by female artists working in Europe between the late 18th and early 20th centuries, including Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun, Rosa Bonheur, and Käthe Kollwitz. This exhibition will consider the various genres and media deemed appropriate for women, the prestigious familial or social connections that aided in career building, and the freedom offered by avant-garde movements that developed outside of official Academic systems, such as Impressionism, Expressionism, Cubism, and Futurism.


Berthe Morisot, Woman Impressionist

2/24/19 to 5/26/19 | Chilton II Gallery

Jonas Wood
