Free and open to everyone
The MAC and Design Society (an affiliate of Dallas Architecture Forum), invite you to join us for a panel discussion as part of The MAC’s current exhibition On the Surface. The panel will discuss how artists and designers focus on materials and process, particularly when working on cultural mapping projects. According to exhibition curator Consuelo Gutierrez, On the Surface focuses on the ways the featured artists’ works survey various cultural artifacts, creating pieces of a cultural map that ranges across different identities and spaces. Although the artists come from different backgrounds, they share common themes and approaches to their work, reacting to the world around them to dig deeper into their own sense of self and place.
