This summer, to accompany its new exhibition DallasSITES: Charting Contemporary Art, 1963 to Present, the Dallas Museum of Art will host for the first time an experimental project space in the Museum’s iconic Barrel Vault and surrounding galleries. DallasSITES: Available Space will activate the galleries with interactive components and installations representative of the current Dallas art scene.
“This is a rare and exciting opportunity for the Museum to engage directly with the local arts community. Our hope is to provide a platform for experimentation that will spark dialogue between local artists and the museum-going public,” explains Gabriel Ritter, The Nancy and Tim Hanley Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art for the Dallas Museum of Art.
