Concentrations 57: Slavs and Tatars

Dallas Museum of Art

New work from the collective Slavs and Tatars, who focus on “the area east of the former Berlin Wall and west of the Great Wall of China known as Eurasia” in their practice.

Mind’s Eye: Masterworks on Paper from David to Cézanne

Dallas Museum of Art

June 29 - October 26, 2014

Despite the fact that the DMA is predictably flogging the Impressionist ballet dancers and still lifes in their press materials for this show, set your skepticism aside: some of these people really, really knew how to translate the world they saw onto a piece of paper. Don't miss this show. Pictured: Jean-Louis-Ernest Meissonier, Le Fumeur, 1873, watercolor and gouache on paper
