Witness How Objects Are Transformed into Art During the Concentrations 61 Exhibit
Established in 1903, the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) is among the 10 largest art museums in the country and is distinguished by its commitment to research, innovation and public engagement. At the heart of the Museum and its programs is its global collection, which encompasses more than 24,000 works and spans 5,000 years of history, representing a full range of world cultures.
Located in the nation’s largest arts district, the Museum acts as a catalyst for community creativity, engaging people of all ages and backgrounds with a diverse spectrum of programming, from exhibitions and lectures to concerts, literary events, and dramatic and dance presentations. Since the Museum’s return to free general admission in 2013, the DMA has welcomed more 3.2 million visitors.
Concentrations 61 is the first solo museum exhibition for Runo Lagomarsino, a conceptual artist of Italian and Argentine descent who lives and works in Malmö, Sweden, and São Paulo, Brazil. His work has been exhibited in group shows at the Guggenheim, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, MCA Chicago, PROSPECT, and the Venice Biennale, among others. Transforming everyday objects and phrases into historically referential works of art, Lagomarsino considers the unstable nature of national identities. Through these deceptively simple transformations, the artist points to the histories and narratives imparted by our transnational identities and the volatile relationship between power and geography.
Concentrations 61 spans two galleries and features new commissions and previous works that have been specifically reformatted for the DMA. The first space addresses moments of colonial and neo-imperial mythmaking; the second has resonances for the current political turmoil in the United States and beyond. Admission is free.
