Discover the Vibrant and Colorful Heritage of Mexico at Dallas Contemporary
April is a special month in Dallas, Texas, and the reason for this is Dallas Arts Month, a city-wide celebration of the diverse and rich cultural landscape that is in Dallas. This annual event is known for its vibrant and colorful celebrations of the arts, and one of the highlights of this event is the Dallas Contemporary Spring 2023 exhibitions. This year's exhibition, Cerámica Suro: a story of Collaboration, Production, and Collecting in the Contemporary Arts, is a must-see for anyone interested in art and culture.
The exhibition is not just about art, but it is also about the rich cultural history of Mexico. The Cerámica Suro factory, founded in the 1950s in Tlaquepaque as a small family studio workshop, has grown into an incubator for global artists, designers, and creatives. Today, it is among Guadalajara’s most important institutions, and it is a ceramics factory where the most ambitious projects in the world of art, architecture, design, and gastronomy are developed and produced.
The influence of Cerámica Suro is highlighted in the spring exhibition program at Dallas Contemporary, with an attendant focus show on Eduardo Sarabia. This must be the place is a solo exhibition of the multidisciplinary work of the Los Angeles-born artist who emigrated to Guadalajara in 2003 due to a personal invitation from Suro after being introduced to the artist’s work in Miami. They have worked and collaborated closely ever since.
Visitors are invited to walk through a home in which the varied elements of the artist's practice are displayed, including outsized, hand-painted blue and white Talavera-style ceramics made in collaboration with Cerámica Suro, paintings that serve as metaphorical windows in the installation space, handmade ceramic kitchenware, and a site-specific mural of vine motifs, which are a signature of Sarabia’s work.
The exhibition is not just about art and culture; it's also about celebrating life. The opening celebration featured drinks made with spirits from LALO Tequila and Dynasty Spirits featuring Townes Vodka and Greenhouse Gin with Rambler Sparkling Water. Delicious tacos from El Come Taco were served all night, and music by No Social and Al G filled the museum.
The Cerámica Suro: a story of Collaboration, Production, and Collecting in the Contemporary Art exhibition is a must-see for anyone interested in art, culture, and life. It's the perfect way to celebrate Dallas Arts Month and the rich cultural landscape that is in Dallas.
