May 25-July 14
Sweet Pass Sculpture Park and SMU’s Pollock Gallery, in collaboration with Austin art collective Partial Shade, are presenting Looms, an exhibition of works by 11 U.S. artists.
featured artists are Cameron Cameron, Leticia Contreras, Zack Ingram, Ariel René Jackson, Eric McMaster, Joiri Minaya, SMU art faculty member Jonathan Molina-Garcia and Partial Shade curators Jesse Cline and Michael Muelhaupt.
In addition, Sweet Pass will show a recent short film by Virginia Lee Montgomery, PONY COCOON, about “a Business Witch and the cryptic birth of a luna moth from a disembodied ponytail.” The film combines themes of psychology, entomology and awakening. And, Dallas artist Timothy Harding has created a site-responsive painting that introduces Sweet Pass’s new media initiative. In addition to its focus on outdoor works, Sweet Pass is expanding its programming to feature video, performance, experimental and hybrid media.
Sofia Bastidas, curator of the Pollock Gallery, said she had been exploring the idea of finding alternative spaces and do-it-yourself venues in Dallas to extend the Pollock’s reach beyond its walls and provide additional opportunities for SMU art students to engage in the community.
