This summer, the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) debuts a selection of recently acquired contemporary and decorative art works in Contemporary Art + Design: New Acquisitions. Jointly organized by the Museum’s decorative arts and design and contemporary art curators, Contemporary Art + Design is the first special exhibition to debut since the Museum’s reopening, after closing in mid-March due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The dynamic group of featured artists and designers in this new show includes Firelei Báez, Derek Fordjour, Shara Hughes, Misha Kahn, Kiff Slemmons, and Tomie Ohtake, among others. The thirty-two works on view are diverse in media and disciplines, and most were acquired in the past two years. They vividly demonstrate the DMA’s commitment to supporting emerging talents, exhibiting work with local relevance, and placing a global perspective at the forefront.
