SMU's Pollock Gallery presents "Wide Open" opening reception
Pollock Gallery will present “Wide Open,” a multimedia exhibition featuring works by international artists that focus on global trade along with historical documents about plans for a Port of Dallas.
The exhibition consists of a multimedia installation of contemporary artists’ works in conversation with historical documents from SMU DeGolyer Library archives about the Port of Dallas project of the late 1800s and early 1900s, which in the planning left a transformed and diverted Trinity River. Featured artists include Marcos Agudelo, Ursula Biemann, More&More Unlimited (an Illogistics Company™ - with Marina Zurkow, Sarah Rothberg and Surya Mattu), Rebecca Moss, Armin Mühsam, Liam Young and Tamir Zadok. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalog with essays by Heather Davis, Peter Fend and Laray Polk, and a foreword by the curators.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through December 2.
