Sweet Pass Sculpture Park announces a new group exhibition, "Bottomland", generated from their alternative education and mentorship program, Sweet Pass Sculpture School. Six multidisciplinary artists selected through an open call traveled to Dallas for two weeks in June 2021 to explore the Texas Blackland Prairie through various site visits, readings, screenings, and talks. Meeting with local cultural producers, they collectively explored Dallas and its surrounding landscape, considering the built environment and its entanglement with nature.
Nathalie Alfonso (Miami, FL), Susana Oliveros Amaya (Bogotá, Colombia), Brook-Lynne Clark (Dallas, TX), Isaac Dunne (Brooklyn, NY), Emily Lee (Austin, TX), Hélène Schlumberger (Houston, TX), present their site-responsive works, developed over the past year, in "Bottomland."
The exhibition runs from May 14 to September 24, 2022, at Sweet Pass Sculpture Park, with various screenings, dinners, and special events TBA.
This exhibition is sponsored in part by a Dallas of Arts and Culture Arts Activate Grant.
