(Continued from page 47) COURTESY THE ARTIST AND THE DALLAS CONTEMPORARY lyrics and vibrant 'Pineapple' video were featured in Paper magazine. Read about the full lineup at Other Walls Piggyback: Many Dallas art galleries plan stellar programming to take advantage of the amplified energy and out- of-town eyes. Case in point is Texas painter Howard Sherman, a UNT grad with a hefty following of Dallas collectors due to his raucous ab-ex canvases. Sherman, whose canvas also graces the cover of the book Texas Abstract, debuts with Circuit12 Contemporary, timed to the Fair — a must-see satellite show in the Dallas Design District (through May 6). Mexico and Spain Calling: A blockbuster and a jewel, each employing connoisseurship and scholarship, are perfectly aligned at the Dallas Museum of Art ("Mexico 1900- 1950," featuring Kahlo, Orozco, Rivera, and other avant-gardists, through July 16) and the Meadows Museum ("Between Heaven and Hell," an epic drawing survey of Spanish 17th-century master Jusepe de Ribera, through June 11). These shows alone would be enough for any collector or art acolyte to pilgrimage to Dallas. Collection City — GMF and Karpidas: Two other Dallas Design District destinations boast tony private collections and not-to-be-missed exhibitions. At Karpidas Collection, peruse Richter, Warhol, Wols, and 27 more talents in "La chute d'eau, le gaz d'eclairage …" organized by guest curator Olivia Shao (through April 29). The Goss-Michael Foundation rolls out a solo for painter Billy Childish (also in the stable of Fair exhibitor Lehmann Maupin, through April 14). Childish's disarming figuration makes him a compelling original. Talk Architecture: On Wednesday, April 5, the architect to the museum and gallery world, Annabelle Selldorf speaks at the Dallas Museum of Art, in collaboration with the Fair. Selldorf is an heir to the influence wielded by Andrée Putman; she dishes design and behind- the-scenes sensibilities from commissions for eminent clients including the Frick Collection, Neue Galerie, Hauser & Wirth, the Whitney, and the Venice Biennale.
