Exhibit

MAOF Book / Libro MAOF

When: 
Friday, November 16, 2018 - 11:00am - Tuesday, December 4, 2018 - 5:00pm

Opening Reception: Friday, November 16, 5-7 p.m.

This exhibit will feature a new book produced by Mexico City-based artist Ramiro Chaves, detailing the work of Puerto Rican artist collective MAOF. Since 2014 MAOF – its name translates as “materials and crafts” – has been working to improve management of waste in Puerto Rico, particularly organic waste. MAOF focuses specifically on collecting fallen trees in an urban setting to explore the historical and everyday uses of wood. Because most goods in the island are imported from the continental U.S., local materials for use by artists and craftsmen are often overlooked. MAOF’s practice is rooted in traditional and often-forgotten, native uses and knowledge of local materials, construction techniques and methods of working with certain tropical woods. Chaves has been documenting MAOF’s work since the group’s inception, and his book will include photos, texts, drawings, diagrams and more tracing MAOF’s collaborative efforts in Puerto Rico. Contributing writers include Pablo Guardiola, Michael Linares, Ulrik Lopez, Michy Marxuach, Ramon Miranda, Ernesto Oroza, Tony Cruz Pabón and Beatriz Muñoz Santiago. The exhibit is produced by Sofia Bastidas, Pollock Gallery curatorial fellow. For more information call 214.768.4439.

At the Beach: Mariano Fortuny y Marsal and William Merritt Chase

When: 
Sunday, June 24, 2018 - 10:00am - Sunday, September 23, 2018 - 5:00pm
Where: 

The painters Mariano Fortuny y Marsal (1838-74) and William Merritt Chase (1849-1916) were separated by more than 10 years of age, the Atlantic Ocean and different backgrounds. This focused exhibition, however, pairs the two while it highlights a modern subject popular among international circles in the nineteenth century, and one that both painters treated with remarkable skill: people at the beach. Recently acquired by the Meadows Museum, Fortuny’s very last painting, Beach at Portici (1874), depicts the artist’s family enjoying leisure time at the beach while residing in Italy.

Price: 

$12 for adults; $8 for seniors; $4 for non-SMU students; FREE for members, children under 12 and SMU faculty, staff and students; FREE Thurs. after 5 p.m.
