The Richard Brettell Award in the Arts April 11-13

brettell

The Richard Brettell Award in the Arts at UT Dallas, established in 2016 with an endowment from Mrs. Eugene McDermott, recognizes the essential and fundamental role in the arts in the life of the university. The award honors an artist working in or between any of the broad spectrum of artistic endeavors, including the visual arts, music, literature, performance, and architecture/design.

Given every other year, the award consists of a prize of $150,000 and a week’s residence on the UT Dallas campus and in Dallas, during which the awardee will present a major public lecture and interact in a variety of venues with the students, staff and faculty of UT Dallas and with the larger arts community of the Dallas-Ft. Worth area.

Prospective awardees will be nominated by the Brettell Award Advisory Committee, composed of international leaders in arts and culture, with the selection of the awardee being made by an Executive Committee composed of university and community leaders.

The concept of the Brettell Award is inspired by the Eugene McDermott Award in the Arts at MIT, created by the McDermott Family at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1974. The MIT McDermott Award is also made every other year, and it is planned to schedule the two events in alternating years.

Sightings: Mai-Thu Perret opens March 12 at the Nasher

Mai-ThuPerretopening

Sightings: Mai-Thu Perret

March 12, 2016 – July 17, 2016
Nasher Sculpture Center, 2001 Flora Street, Dallas, TX 75201

Join us on opening weekend for a conversation with Swiss-born exhibition artist Mai-Thu Perret, who has spent the past 16 years making work born from a fictional feminist art commune she created called The Crystal Frontier. Set in New Mexico, the imaginary women of the commune make work that runs the visual gamut, from the painterly to the sculptural. More on the exhibition here

For Sightings, Perret will build on this project, installing recent ceramics and paintings, along with a new body of work that relates her interest in utopian societies to the recent development of a secular Kurdish community in the Syrian region of Rojava.

“I don’t think utopian ideas are bound to fail, but quite likely when they become real or succeed they stop being called utopias.” – Mai-Thu Perret

Complimentary wine reception with RSVP. FREE with admission. FREE for Members.

Join us on opening day for a talk with Belgian exhibition artist Ann Veronica Janssens. Known primarily as a light artist, Janssens is interested in “situations of dazzlement… the persistence of vision, vertigo, saturation, speed, and exhaustion” —in other words, how the body responds to certain scientific phenomena and conditions put upon it. More on the exhibition here

“Nothing is more beautiful than a person’s own perception” – Ann Veronica Janssens
