January 30 – April 30, 2017

INTRO-HEADER-warehousejan2017_026 (1)As we enter the fifth year of The Warehouse, we want to share with visitors our own personal journey in collecting. Unlike past exhibitions, which were very specific and curatorially rigorous, this presentation reflects the pluralistic nature of contemporary art at this moment, when no dominant art movement controls the conversation.

Allan Schwartzman has curated not one but several ideas that interest us, embracing recent acquisitions as well as older works not previously presented at The Warehouse. This is by no means an attempt to define the state of contemporary art, but rather an effort to evaluate our own collecting instincts as we navigate the contemporary art world.

We welcome feedback and look forward to many conversations as we proceed along our journey.

Please enjoy,

Cindy and Howard

Parallel Views: Italian and Japanese Art from the 1950s, 60s, and 70s aims to show connections between the work of a diverse range of artists from two geographic locations – Italy and Japan – during the early post-war period. Artists from groups such as Arte Povera, Gutai, and Mono-ha are included in the exhibition. Works on view are part of The Rachofsky Collection, The Amy and Vernon Faulconer Collection, and the Dallas Museum of Art, along with a number of other collections. Many of these artists have not been shown prominently throughout the United States, and along with the Dallas Museum of Art, The Warehouse is making a concerted effort to present this exciting and important material to an American audience. Parallel Views is curated by Allan Schwartzman. On view February 17, 2013 – January 31, 2014.
