Don't leave Dallas without…visiting the new Trinity Groves area right over the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. This year is all about…dynamic partnerships. Three exhibitions you have to see are…Rirkrit Tiravanija at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Fredrik Vaerslev at The Power Station and the 2014 Dallas Biennial at The Goss Michael Foundation. Top of your list during Dallas Arts Week…Dallas Art Fair, of course. If there's time to spare, you'll be…having a quick coffee at Ascen- sion to recharge and keep going. Stay at…the Joule hotel. Have dinner at…El Ranchito in Oak Cliff. The fair draws collectors from...New York to Mexico City, Phoenix to Atlanta, and everywhere in between. We're also anticipating visitors from Australia this year. The most exciting new gallery showing is...Alexander DiJulio at Circuit12 Contemporary. The art scene in Dallas is...energetic and diverse, with mega-collec- tions, interesting street projects, important museums and a lively community of working artists. The Dallas Art Fair begins on April 11, but arrive on April 4 so that you can...attend the MTV RE:DEFINE event at the Dallas Contempo- rary and spend the week visiting the numerous important institutions in North Texas. At the Dallas Contemporary, you're most looking forward to…seeing the Playboy Marfa installation by Richard Phillips light up the Design District neighborhood. Three artists on your radar are…Loris Gréaud, David Salle and Cas- sandra Emswiler. Richard Phillips is important because…since the early '90s, he has challenged the formal structures of painting, pushing the boundaries like no other artist. Showcasing a long and prolific career spanning 20 years, the Dallas Contemporary is thrilled to be organizing Phillips' first solo museum exhibition in the country. It will highlight painting, sculpture and video works. I'm thrilled about this major exhibition with such an important artist and popular culture provocateur. What's exciting about the OHWOW Know-Wave pirate radio station and book club project at the Joule hotel is…that this kind of project is something that doesn't happen very often anywhere—particularly in Dallas. Leave it to our friends at Traffic Los Angeles and the Joule to bring something as cool and experimental as OHWOW to Dallas. —Tali Jaffe HEAD SOUTH As Dallas Arts Week approaches—promising to be a cultural highlight this spring—Peter Doroshenko, the Dallas Contemporary's executive director, lets us in on the city's rising scene. 66 CULTURED PHOTO BY RACHEL COX, COURTESY DALLAS CONTEMPORARY
