Dallas Art Fair Diversifies with 30+ New Galleries April 12th-15th

 

The Dallas Art Fair will take place from April 12-15, 2018, at the Fashion Industry Gallery. In celebrating its 10th anniversary, there will be an addition of almost 30 new galleries. Names include James Cohan Gallery, Van Doren Waxter, Casey Kaplan, Paul Kasmin Gallery, Rachel Uffner Gallery, Green Art Gallery, The Hole, Luhring Augustine and Praz- Delavallade, among others. The galleries join nearly 100 participants, from close to 30 different cities.

The 2018 activation is ushered in with veteran Kelly Cornell and Brandon Kennedy rising to the helm of the Fair as Directors, and Co-Founder John Sughrue as Chairman. The ascent of these principals mirrors the scope of the Fair’s projection into the future – a pace that is equally exciting and reflective of the larger contemporary market.

“This year is particularly ripe with opportunity to further diversify community engagement, and dialogue with arts patrons across the globe. We're bringing the best the art world has to offer to Dallas, and showcasing this incredible city in return,” says Fair Director, Kelly Cornell.

Proceeds from ticket sales to the Dallas Art Fair’s Annual Preview Benefit will be donated to the Dallas Museum of Art, the Dallas Contemporary and the Nasher Sculpture Center. Equally thrilling will be the events presented by local institutions as part of Dallas Arts Month including solo exhibitions with Sara Rahbar, Eric Fischl and Harry Nuriev at the Dallas Contemporary, Laura Owens at the Dallas Museum of Art, Adam Gordon at the Power Station, and at the Nasher Sculpture Center, First Sculpture: Handaxe to Figure Stone and Nasher Prize Dialogues with Theaster Gates.

More than 85,000 guests have attended the Dallas Art Fair since 2009. Located at the Fashion Industry Gallery – adjacent to the Dallas Museum of Art in Dallas’ dynamic downtown Arts District – the 2018 Dallas Art Fair will feature nearly 100 prominent national and international art dealers and galleries exhibiting painting, sculpture, works on paper, photography, video, and installation by modern and contemporary artists.
