BEGIN:VCALENDAR VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN PRODID:iCalendar-Ruby VERSION:2.0 BEGIN:VEVENT DESCRIPTION:

The second exhibition to be featured in the Museum’s groundb reaking Center for Creative Connections (C3) galleries\, Encountering Space presents works of art from the Museum collecti ons and asks visitors to consider how space is used to invite engagement\, raise questions\, and create meaning. As viewers begin to encounter works o f art this way\, they are no longer passive observers but active participan ts. 

\n

In approximately twelve works of art from the Museum’s collect ions—including the paintings Eiffel Tower by Robert Delaunay and High-Speed Gardening by Michael Bevilaqua\, the sculptures Me rcury’s Gift to the Mirror by Michelangelo Pistoletto and Three Men Walking by Alberto Giacometti\, and a 16th-century Benin wooden plaque from Nigeria and an ancient clay vessel from Peru’s Moche civilization—E ncountering Space explores the different ways space affects us\, both p hysically and emotionally\, and the impact of these reactions on our total experience with a work of art. A painting can show us real spaces from a pa rticular point of view in a way that makes us feel as if we could actually enter those spaces. Sculptures can push into our space or draw into their s paces. We can physically enter the space of some works of art\, like the DM A’s Fleischner Courtyard\, also included in the exhibition\, to literally b ecome a part of the work.

\n

New design elements will be installed thr oughout the C3 galleries\, including an immersive entrance to the exhibitio n. Video labels accompanying works of art will provide contextual informati on related to space as a theme. Encountering Space will also include a community-based response installation and several areas for visitor participation.

\n

Encountering Space is organ ized by the Dallas Museum of Art. DMA educators and curators collaborated w ith the Museum’s collections and exhibitions department to conceive and dev elop the exhibition.
