Redefining Space for Art | Chinati and MASS MoCA

November 5, 2017
1:30 p.m.

The Dallas Architecture Forum presents the 2017 Dallas Design Symposium with speakers Jenny Moore, Director, Chinati Foundation and Joseph Thompson, Founding Director, MASS MoCA.

The Chinati Foundation and MASS MoCA are two acclaimed centers for art that have repurposed abandoned spaces to create innovative and internationally recognized centers for the display of art. 

The Forum's 2017 Design Symposium will present the directors of these two centers in compelling conversation as they each overview their organization, including how the site was repurposed as a center for the display of art, often at a scale and scope not possible in more conventional settings. Ms. Moore and Mr. Thompson will highlight some of the iconic art on display at their centers. 

Ms. Moore will  also overview the new master plan for Chinati, and Mr. Thompson will highlight the major MASS MoCA campus expansion that was recently completed.  The symposium will conclude with a moderated conversation and audience questions.
