DALLAS ART FAIR, EDITION 14 By Catherine D. Anspon I t's the reason this issue devotes eight pages to our inaugural Top Collectors in Texas feature (pages 50 – 58), and why Dallas has eclipsed every other city in the state as a dynamic 21st-century nexus for collecting and visual culture. Just as a great newspaper leads a town, so has the Dallas Art Fair jump-started engagement (including with the city's top three museums and their trustees), stimulated intellectual curiosity, and birthed serious inquiry into the art of collecting contemporary artists from around the globe — talents whose work possesses smart content, paired with singular, finely honed aesthetics. Kudos to John Sughrue, who co-founded Dallas Art Fair back in 2009 — an endeavor unique in being the only non big-box major fair in America. DAF is Texas born and raised. Against many odds, the fair has grown, survived challenges, and thrived to impact and bring together not only an entire community, but arts enthusiasts, advocates, curators, and collectors across the state. Dallas Art Fair roars back at full capacity this month, returning to Fashion Industry Gallery. The robust, full-sized 14th edition features 85 international, national, and Texas galleries. We'll meet you by the Jean-Michel Othoniel at Perrotin. Dallas Art Fair. April 21 – 24; Early Access Champagne Soirée, Thursday, April 21, 4 to 8 pm, supporting Dallas Contemporary, DMA, and Nasher Sculpture Center; Javier Peláez's Camuflaje #2, 2021, at Saenger Galería Doug Ohlson's Marker/The Deep, 1986, at Louis Stern Fine Arts 94
