Drawn primarily from the Dallas Museum of Art’s collection, Difference? explores the work of contemporary women artists produced over the past fifty years and features more than eighty works in a variety of media. The exhibition draws attention to the fact that there is only one thing these artists have in common. In doing so, we pose the question, “What’s the difference, and does it matter?”
Difference? highlights well-known works in the collection, such as Lee Krasner’s 1968 Pollination and Dorothea Tanning’s 1979 Pincushion to Serve as Fetish, alongside recent acquisitions that have previously never been on view. Two works that entered the collection earlier this year by Japanese artist Tsuruko Yamazaki, both titled Work, will be on view for the first time, as will Leslie Hewitt’s Untitled (Arc) and Untitled (Incandescent), and two 2009 photographs by Marlo Pascual both titled Untitled. Difference? will open on Friday, October 19, in conjunction with the Concentrations exhibition dedicated to Glasgow-based female artist Karla Black.
