Visiting Artist Lecture: MAOF

When: 
Wednesday, November 15, 2017 - 7:00pm

MAOF is an art collective based in Puerto Rico. Members salvage tropical discarded trees and other goods of biological origin to make material for design and art projects, with a focus on creating a local woodworking culture that is both sustainable and economically feasible. Part of the wood is also turned into compost for their nursery, yielding plants that can be added back to the local landscape. They have conducted projects examining the local culture of use and consumption of resources in Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Mexico and New York City.

Hawn Gallery Exhibit: “Collective Practice: Community Building Through Zines” - Opening Reception

When: 
Friday, October 20, 2017 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm

The Hawn Gallery presents Collective Practice: Community Building Through Zines, works by Puro Chingón Collective, comprised of James Huizar, Claudia Zapata and Claudia Aparicio-Gamundi. The works on display include prints, short films, and zines largely from the collective’s own publication, ChingoZine. Zines are similar to magazines, but rather than ones seen on newsstands, they are noncommercial, often homemade or digitally created. They specialize in unconventional subject matter that reflects the subcultures or communities the creators belong to.

Pollock Gallery Exhibit: Let’s See Action - Opening reception

When: 
Saturday, February 3, 2018 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm

Let’s See Action considers the uniquely cooperative and internationally oriented approach to the creation and dissemination of contemporary art that has been a characteristic of Japanese art practice, post-war to present day. The exhibition focuses on a group of artists active within Japan and abroad over the past 10 years; however, the exhibition is rooted in, and in some cases directly influenced by, the practice of historical collectives such as Jikken Kobo/ Experimental Workshop (1951-58) and High Red Center (1963-64).

Pollock Gallery Exhibit: “Wide Open” - Opening reception

When: 
Friday, November 3, 2017 - 5:00pm - 7:00pm

Since the late 1800s, Dallas has imagined itself as the center of economic trade, equidistant to major ports and hubs throughout the United States. The Port of Dallas, a vision for an inland port stretching from Dallas to Houston via the Trinity River, was a topic of conversation for over 125 years. The massive engineering feat of rerouting the river around Dallas’ city center was embraced by Dallas visionaries regardless of its environmental effects on the community and ecosystem.
