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.   

FALL/WINTER ART ROTATION

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.
