Michael Corris: Dallas-Venice Dreamscapes

Postponed until Fall 2020

See Hamon Arts Library hours of operation for exhibit times

An exhibition of new works by the artist and writer Michael Corris offering a conceptual-surrealist vision of art’s role in the process of forming a city’s identity.


“Dallas-Venice Dreamscapes” focuses on the artist’s relationship over the course of several decades with Dallas, Texas and Venice, Italy; two cities that have had a significant impact on Corris’ artistic and personal life.


The project consists of three large-scale composite works that assemble more than three dozen individual artworks representing images, publications, and correspondence. The content of these synoptic works ranges from the 1970s to the present. Included in this array will be a version of “The Dallas Pavilion II” (2019), which was presented at 58th edition of the Biennale Arte, Venice.


An illustrated guide to the exhibition published by Free Museum of Dallas Press will be available, along with additional relevant publications by the artist.
