The Goss-Michael Foundation will present Instincts, a series of site-specific paintings and sculptures by internationally renowned Cuban-American and Brooklyn-based artist, José Parlá. This is the inaugural solo exhibition at the Foundation’s new location on Wycliff Avenue.

The show, curated by Michael Mazurek, Director and Curator, The Goss Michael Foundation, will debut original works by the highly ebullient painter. To Parlá, painting is a sensual instinct that allows him to create free-forms, a trait he cannot shake. When he paints, he is in the moment.

This awareness and creative instinct are sensibilities that have been with the artist most of his life and continue as the main theme of inquiry for his exhibition at The Goss-Michael Foundation in Dallas, TX. Expanding on previous motifs and exploring new ideas in bypassing the consciousness of self-creative control, the artist embarks on a journey of playful investigation with color and space; the primitive relationship between word and image; and erasure, reflection, and introspection.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be in display through November 11.
