Park House Fall Exhibition

Rotating Exhibitions

Park House Rotating Exhibitions  
In addition to its permanent collection, Park House features a rotating program of specially curated exhibitions and a wide-ranging series of talks and events, all designed to enrich our understanding of those working at the forefront of contemporary art.   Through this evolving art program, Park House seeks to entertain, provoke and educate our members and their guests.   


Exhibition Overview
This October, Park House is delighted to present an exhibition of works from its members’ collections, highlighting the work of six women artists, to showcase eight of their works in the gallery halls. Concepts of deconstruction will be explored for this exhibition. By taking a deconstructive approach, in which not one single meaning can be found in a work, but rather many and often conflicting, we are able to discover and better understand underlying and perhaps unspoken thematics and frameworks. We open the work for interpretation by observation.  In each of these works the viewer is only privy to a moment in time, to the equivalent of a film still in a feature film. An instance with endless possibilities, with uncertain beginnings and endings. The placement of the works in the exhibition aims to provoke a desire to investigate what is not apparent at first glance and produce — rather than presume — meaning to the works and also to place them in conversation with one another. Members are invited to spend time with each piece, to look closely and often. 

The exhibition is curated by Dallas Contemporary’s Deputy Director, Carolina Alvarez-Mathies and will remain on view through April 2021.

Gilbert & George

Art for All

Gilbert & George are a fascinating collaborative duo based in East London. With the creed "Art for All," they have engaged and stunned the world with their peculiar performance pieces and vibrant photo-collage work.  

The pair met while studying at St. Martin's School of Art, and have lived together as "living sculptures" ever since. Their performance art piece, The Singing Sculpture, put them on the map in 1969. Since then, the two have functioned as one artist, and are known for large-scale photography, often working in bold colors and black grids. 

Rarely seen apart, and almost always in matching suits, Gilbert & George's relevancy extends beyond the art world. They have inspired comic book series and their work has been a favorite collectable of David Bowie.  In 2008, they were listed among the best dressed men over 50 in The Guardian. This year, they released a collaboration with the brand, Supreme

Their work is featured in The Art Institute of Chicago, Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, Museum of Modern Art, New York, Tate Gallery, London, and all around the world.  

All Gilbert & George artwork is available for purchase from Lehmann Maupin Gallery. Prices available upon request.

Charlie Billingham

A Well Deserved Break

Park House opened it's doors and showcased British painter, Charlie Billingham, and his unique art work that was featured in our rotating art gallery from December 2018 through October 2019. 

Charlie Billingham takes imagery from Regency-era satirical prints and drawings, cropping and distorting sections to create new compositions, devoid of the intended political and social meanings of the original illustrations. A rainbow of powdered wigs, plumed bonnets, sagging britches, and full-figured bottoms dance across his paintings. The canvases, which are sometimes hinged together to make folding screens, are often hung on block printed wall paintings and alongside colorful painted plant pots and houseplants, to create decorative, domestic interiors. Charlie Billingham (b. 1984, London) studied Fine Art and History of Art in Edinburgh (2008) and then Fine Art at the Royal Academy Schools in London (2013).
