This Week in Dallas: Art, Film, and Live Music

November 17, 2015

It may be dreary outside, but that cool weather is the perfect reason to show off that brand new outfit. This week is full of art exhibitions, film premiers, and live music! So try to suppress that road rage as best as you can, and go have (cheap or free) fun!

Thursday

Matthew Brinston’s solo exhibition “I Wish I Were Me" at WAAS Gallery 

This new body of work, a collection of large-scale oil paintings and clay sculptures, rhythmically and aggressively deals with inward reflection and the journey towards the truest version of yourself. Utilizing abstraction, jagged shapes, and bold colors Brinston invites his viewer to dwell in the tension of who we are, who we were, and who we wish we could become.

"ATTENTION" by S2 x SMITH II Short Film at the Dallas Contemporary ( 7:30 pm- 10pm)

Attention, based on a true story written and directed by Charles Smith II, inspired by personal past experiences on the up and down hill battles that love presents. The by any means necessary for attention played by Stevi, female role, seeking everything that she thought she wasn’t getting by stepping outside of the relationship. Displaying guilt, insecurities, anger, trauma and deception by perception. The motion picture mini short film displays the journey through the eyes of both actors perspective of pain, love and character transcendence. The toxic fulfillment that each character fights to find within one another with glimpses of climax moments and heated arguments, passionate intimacy and clear gut wrenching betrayal in trust.

Saturday

Text and art in visual culture; Michael Corris exhibition opening at Liliana Bloch ( 6pm - 9pm)

In this exhibition of monotypes, Michael Corris explores the rich conversation between text and image in art and visual culture.

The format of Corris's monotypes pairs the printed image with the palette of pigments used to create the original painting. This composition alludes to the formal structure of the emblem, a complex allegorical symbol consisting of an image, a motto, and a narrative text. In Corris' emblems, the title or extended caption of the image functions as a motto in disguise.

Viddy well! Clockwork Orange in 35mm + a concert. Slooshy the bird of rarest-spun heaven metal, or like, silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now, the sounds of George Quartz', witness the gang of vicious, young hoodlums of seres* and hear the angel trumpets and devil trombones of BLACK TAFFY!
The theatre's lobby will be transformed into the old Korova Milkbar, so come with uncles, the Cold Cut Deejays, to hear all proper the most horror-show fuzzy warbles of the modern age!
