Assistant Professor Benjamin Lima to present at the DMA

Benjamin Lima, Assistant Professor in the Department of Art and Art History, will give a gallery talk at the Dallas Museum of Art on Wednesday, September 26th at 12:15pm. The talk will discuss work by the Gutai group, Michelangelo Pistoletto, James Welling and others in the museum's current exhibition "Variations on a Theme."

About the exhibition:

This installation drawn primarily from the Museum’s collection brings together works in all media from disparate periods to explore themes and ideas that drive an artist’s creative process. Sections will be devoted to thematic associations including abstraction, minimalism, and the figure. Historical and literal associations such as the use of text, the construction of typologies, and the tradition of Vanitas will structure other groupings. Works from the collection that have never before been seen will be installed alongside a number of recent acquisitions to focus a new lens on ways of discovering the collection.
