Dallas Museum of Art presents "Contemporary Art + Design" closing day
"Contemporary Art + Design" presents recently acquired paintings, installations, jewelry, furnishings, and design objects. Featuring artists from 11 countries - including artists based in Texas and emerging painters and designers - the exhibition samples new directions for the growth of the DMA’s collection.
The painters’ inventive treatments of organic forms show contemporary approaches to landscapes and still lifes. These forms resonate with the unique shapes of the surrounding design works, from the experimental and functional sculptures by Ron Arad and Misha Kahn to the elegant and whimsical jewelry by Robert Baines, Bruno Martinazzi, Jiro Kamata, and Kiff Slemmons.
