Wednesday Morning Roundup

by Stephen Becker 10 Oct 2012 6:42 AM

Today in the roundup: Jonathan Norton talks about his new show, the DMA visits Paris and the Nasher wants to text you.


HIT THE DUMP BUTTON: Last night, TeCo Theatrical Productions opened the debut of Jonathan Norton’s Ain’t That Some … You remember Jonathan – he gave an incredibly entertaining talk about his writing process during the recent Art&Seek-curated Pecha Kucha. He ups the ante with his new show, the title of which sets off the alarms in our standards department. But don’t let that stop you – from the video above, it looks as if this is a fun one.

A TRIP TO PARIS: On Sunday, the Dallas Museum of Art opens “Posters of Paris: Toulouse-Lautrec and His Contemporaries,” an exhibition of French artistic posters. I’ll be headed to the press preview on Thursday, but you can take a look before even the ink-stained wretches. That’s because the museum’s Uncrated blog has posted a series of photos detailing the show’s installation.

WORDS ON THE WALL: The very nature of what constitutes art is the subject of “Sculpture in So Many Words: Text Pieces 1960-75,” currently on view at the Nasher Sculpture Center. The show’s unique in that it doesn’t contain any images – just text. So what’s the thinking behind that? Dakin Hart, who curated the show, walks through his thought process in the latest episode of Art This Week.
