DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. I f you're interested in visual culture or starting a collection, or if your sights are set on making the Artnews Top 200, clear your calendar for April 6 through 9, for Dallas Art Fair. Year nine promises to be packed with importance and surprises, with nearly 100 galleries — including three dozen arriving from London, Bogota, Dublin, Amsterdam, Brussels, Paris, Monterrey, Geneva, Madrid, San Juan, Dubai, Berlin, and Tokyo — and more than 30 new exhibitors. Biggest news to date: Global brand Gagosian Gallery, with its estimated $1 billion in annual sales, makes its first Fair appearance. The lineup also includes independents such as Workplace Gallery (founded in Gateshead, UK) and The Green Gallery from Milwaukee. Returning Dallas dealers Barry Whistler Gallery, James Cope's And Now, and Erin Cluley Gallery exhibit alongside notables Skarstedt Gallery (home to '80s-era rediscovered figurative master David Salle) and Galerie Perrotin, again showing international it-artist Daniel Arsham, who mines history, natural science, and archaeology in his dystopian sculptures and installations. Another factoid: Awol Erizku, the MoMA-exhibited artist from Ethiopia who snapped Beyoncé's sensational Instagram "pregnant with twins" image, is represented by newcomer Night Gallery from L.A. The best way to navigate the Fair is to acquire the insider-y Patron Pass ($500), which offers early admittance to the Preview Gala (Thursday, April 6) and daytime shopping before opening night, tony collection tours, lectures, the very cool Eye Ball (Saturday, April 8), and Dallas Contemporary Members Opening bash (Friday, April 7). Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center, and Dallas Contemporary are beneficiaries of the Preview Gala: Will go-go Larry Gagosian be in attendance, rubbing shoulder with Fair co-founders Chris Byrne and John Sughrue? That's the question of the day. Details, schedule, tickets, exhibitor list, Catherine D. Anspon
