Dallas Center for Contemporary Art
Dallas Contemporary nurtures emerging talent and presents art to challenge audiences to think creatively.Â Their 2011 programming represents the inaugural year for new Executive Director Peter Doroshenko who joined Dallas Contemporary in October 2010. With Doroshenko’s leadership, thought-provoking exhibitions, and engaging learning programs will expose visitors to the best in contemporary art and educate them about the concepts and media used by contemporary artists. The 2011 MIDEA minigrantÂ supported the development of a bi-lingual, interactive tour for high school and young adult visitors of the exhibition Rest In Power, by graffiti writing collective Sour Grapes, using the location-based service SCVNGR. Rest in Power consists of two major wall installations at Dallas Contemporary, one on the interior and one on the exterior of the building.Â The exhibition will be on view through August 2011.Â Additional learning programs based around the exhibition include Taking It to the Streets, a studio intensive, graffiti workshop for teens, and Chit Chat, a talk with the Sour Grapes collective, and Kids Studio, a family program illuminating the creative process of the collective.
