The Dallas Architecture Forum Presents Dallas Design Symposium Redefining Space for Art | Chinati and MASS MoCA
Check-in: 1 p.m.
Symposium: 1:30-3:30 p.m.
Jenny Moore, Director, Chinati Foundation
Joseph Thompson, Founding Director, MASS MoCA
The Chinati Foundation and MASS MoCA are two highly acclaimed centers for contemporary art that have repurposed abandoned spaces to create innovative and internationally recognized centers for the display of art. These museums have created opportunities for visitors to interact with art - in unusual and unique settings - in dramatic yet intimate ways.
The Forum's 2017 Design Symposium will present Jenny Moore and Joseph Thompson in compelling conversation as they each overview their organizations. They'll discuss how their expansive sites were repurposed for the display of art, with emphasis on how the size of their venues provides opportunities to present art at a scale and scope not possible in most conventional art museums.
Ms. Moore and Mr. Thompson will discuss highlights of the significant collections on display at their museums. Ms. Moore will also overview the new master plan recently completed for Chinati, while Mr. Thompson will highlight the major MASS MoCA campus expansion that just opened this year. The Symposium will conclude with a moderated conversation between Ms. Moore and Mr. Thompson, with time for audience questions.
