OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. 16 A n enfant terrible of the photography world, Juergen Teller is known for images that are raw, subversive, and sexually charged. But when he turned his lens to the two- Michelin-starred culinary creations of Antonio Guida — then executive chef at Hotel Il Pellicano in Porto Ercole — Teller's style took on a more sumptuous, vibrant, color-drenched tone. The project was a commission for the book Eating at Hotel Il Pellicano (Violette Editions, $60) in 2013, when the hotel and chef were at the top of their culinary fame, with Guida's startling-hued creations appearing more pop art than food. Three of Teller's photographs for the book have been super-sized and now command the penthouse dining room at Mirador restaurant at Forty Five Ten on Main. Teller will visit Forty Five Ten, aptly timed with this month's swarm of art happenings (his gallery, Lehmann Maupin, is an exhibitor at Dallas Art Fair), and sign the exquisite Il Pellicano book Friday, April 7, 4 to 6 pm. Forty Five Ten on Main, 1615 Main St., 214.559.4510; Christina Geyer JUERGEN TELLER'S FOOD PORN W hen Chris Byrne and John Sughrue co-founded Dallas Art Fair nine years ago, little did they know if would take root in the cultural consciousness to become the top boutique fair in North America — including those mounted in Miami Beach and NYC. Support among Dallas institutions and community has been key to its growth and recognition — a whole- hearted embrace by Texas collectors, museums, foundations, and nonprofits. Nearly every serious collector in the state attends, and so should you: April 6 DALLAS TAKES ON the ART WORLD through 9, at Fashion Industry Gallery. Year nine is the most important yet, with nearly 100 galleries arriving from Latin America, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East as well as New York, L.A., and San Francisco. More than 30 are new to the Fair, including global brand Gagosian Gallery, with an estimated $1 billion in annual sales, mixing it up with Dallas dealers including Barry Whistler, James Cope, Talley Dunn, and Erin Cluley. Read our picks of the Fair and the best of Dallas Arts Month, page 46. Best way to navigate it all: 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 fashion- encounters-art Eye Ball (Saturday, April 8), and Dallas Contemporary opening night (Friday, April 7). Dallas Museum of Art, Nasher Sculpture Center, and Dallas Contemporary are beneficiaries of the Preview Gala, a not-to-be-missed acquisition opportunity — and also the best art-people watching on the planet.
