Monday Morning Roundup

by Stephen Becker 15 Nov 2010 7:59 AM

Today in the roundup: A few words with Kenny Goss, how Lone Star found success and Artopia in review.


BIGGER AND BETTER: In 2005, Kenny Goss and George Michael opened a gallery in Uptown Dallas to display their collection of Contemporary British art. And it didn’t take long for them to realize that space just wasn’t big enough. That’s why the pair will open a new, 12,000 sq. ft. space in the Design District this week, which will focus on their extensive collection of Young British Artists. “I don’t think only rich people should get to see art,” Goss tells “This way, kids can come and see this YBA art without having to be rich and go to New York or London.”

THAT’S A WRAP: The fourth edition of the Lone Star International Film Festival came and went over the weekend. I hope to finally get around to recapping my Friday night at the Festival Ball a little later today, but Christopher Kelly has gone ahead and summarized the whole thing over at I agree with his feeling that this year’s event was, “a case study in how a festival can build an entire weekend around one or two marquee artists.”

ART ALL NIGHT: Did you make it out to the inaugural Artopia event in Victory Park? The night was an assault on the senses, with music, art, fashion and food all in attendance. If you missed the event, or just want to relive it, the Dallas Observer has put together a handy slide show.
