Liliana Bloch Gallery presents Alice Bidault and Andrew Davis: From Dijon to Dallas Opening Reception
Liliana Bloch Gallery presents From Dijon to Dallas, curated by Sofia Bastidas, the 2016 Pollock Curatorial Fellow for Southern Methodist University, Meadows School of the Arts. This exhibition features two artists chosen through an exchange between the Division of Art at SMU Meadows School of the Arts and the École Nationale Supérieure d'Art (ENSA) of Dijon, France: Meadows alumna Andrew Davis (M.F.A. '16) from Dallas and Alice Bidault from Dijon.
From Dijon to Dallas is part of a postgraduate fellowship program launched in 2015 by the Meadows School and ENSA. This is the second year of this annual exchange. Each year, an artist is selected from each institution to spend a six-week residency on exchange at the other, which will include studio and living spaces and an exhibition in each location. Bidault will serve as an artist-in-residence in Dallas in July and August, 2015. Andrew Davis will be in residence at ENSA in Dijon in September and October, 2015. Following the Pollock exhibition, ENSA will host an exhibition of the two artists' work at FRAC Bourgogne in October. The artists were selected through a nomination process at each university, and the final selection was made by Gabriel Ritter, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and formerly Assistant Curator at the Dallas Museum of Art.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through September 3.
