Nonprofit artspace SITE131 proposes as its core pursuit to spotlight the concept of pairing — presenting new art from America and abroad side-by-side with new works by Texas artists. By coupling bright, mostly young talents who deal with similar issues, the art audience sees novel connections and finds a unique context for understanding contemporary art in new ways.
ENTERS DALLAS ARTS SCENE
SITE131 faces the dramatic Calatrava bridge and dynamic Dallas skyline in an energetic contemporary art center. A hub for major private collections, Dallas also boasts five Pritzker awarded buildings, a popular Art Fair, a citywide arts prize, and the largest fundraising auction of contemporary art in the U.S. Located near downtown in Dallas’ Design District, developers are quickly expanding its design and living opportunities.
COMPLEMENTS OTHER DALLAS ART SPACES
SITE131 complements Dallas’ art community that includes an encyclopedic art museum with strong contemporary collections, a world renowned sculpture center, many artist-run spaces, large and intimate private spaces, commercial and university galleries, and an artists’ residency program.
