Artbeef is a dallas based group of artists working cooperatively to challenge conventional notions of artistic production and exhibition. Over the last few years this semi-anonymous collective has staged performances and curated events that de-emphasize authorial value, alternating strategies of sole proprietorship and lending agency to the sometimes nebulous arrangement of community. Recently this loosely organized collective has welcomed additional participants who will take part in a new installation that will be made especially for the UT Dallas Visual Arts Building. Along with a catalog of previous work this newly energized group will offer a special look into the history of its endeavors as well as the trajectory for its future.
Friday, September 18 – Friday, October 9, ATC 1.705, Free
This three-person exhibition features large paintings and video from local artist Scott Barber, who died of complications from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 2005. Most known for its visual depiction of cancer cells, Barber’s work is joined by work from artists David Sunshine and Luke Harden.
