DALLAS, TX.- The Dallas Art Fair announced that its 13th annual edition will take place November 11-14, when it will once again host the best international and local contemporary art dealers at the Fashion Industry Gallery (f.i.g.). Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the 2021 fair will operate at a reduced capacity—allowing for a more open, spacious floor plan and safer experience for visitors and dealers.

“After more than 18 months of uncertainty, we cannot stress enough how happy we are to finally reopen our doors in the fall. People are eager to see art in person and revitalize the creative economy, so we will do everything possible to make that experience safe for our collectors, dealers, and visitors this November,” said Dallas Art Fair Director Kelly Cornell.

This year’s fair will feature a major off-site public art installation by Brooklyn-based social practice artist Caledonia Curry, better known as Swoon, who is celebrated for her community-based projects and influence on fellow women street artists. In 2020, in collaboration with PBS American Portrait, Swoon transformed a 14-foot box truck into The House Our Families Built: a fantastical, mobile sculptural “house” that portrays scenes of domestic life and asks viewers to consider their own ancestral histories. Presented by Santa Fe’s Turner Carroll Gallery, the installation will be on view at Klyde Warren Park for the duration of the fair. Since its creation, Swoon’s installation has only been seen in New York City and in a presentation by Turner Carroll Gallery in Santa Fe in May 2021; this will be the first time it is shown in Texas.

Other highlights of the 2021 edition of the fair include a solo booth of new paintings by Hong Kong native Chris Huen Sin Kan, presented by Simon Lee Gallery, and a thematic installation of paintings, ceramics, and a performance by artists Scott and Tyson Reeder, presented by Canada.

On Wednesday, November 10, Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) Director Agustín Arteaga, DMA Curator Vivian Li, and donors to the Dallas Art Fair Foundation Acquisition Program will privately tour exhibitors’ booths and select works for the museum’s permanent collection. This will be the fifth edition of the program, which has gifted more than 30 artworks to the DMA to date.

The Dallas Art Fair will closely monitor CDC public health recommendations in the lead-up to the fair to implement the safest health protocols in November.
