Taking place April 4–7, 2024, Dallas Art Fair returns to the city’s Arts District with 91 gallery exhibitors from all over the world—including Bogota, Seoul, Mexico City, Milan, and Madrid. In addition to the international cohort, more than 20 American cities from Boston to San Francisco and everywhere in between will be represented at the fair.

The Dallas Art Fair has come to be recognized not only as a hub of the local Texas art scene, but also on a global scale. “We’re thrilled to celebrate the sixteenth year of the fair. We owe our longevity to the loyalty and enthusiasm of our substantial collector base, as well as to the excellent taste and quality of our exhibitors,” said fair Director Kelly Cornell. “We have exhibitors traveling from all over the world to meet with buyers in Dallas, and it shows our city’s strength in the international art market.”

Veteran exhibitors including Alexander Berggruen, New York; Luis De Jesus Los Angeles; and Proyectos Monclova, Mexico City, will return with dynamic showcases spanning all manner of medium. With a range of established and new galleries participating, the fair promises to draw sharp focus on the trends of the art market and introduce new artists to the collecting community.

In addition to the diverse array of art on view throughout the fair, Dallas Art Fair has announced a full slate of programming—both on- and off-site. Following its runaway success last year, this includes the return of “immersive garden experience” Eyeboretum at the Eye at the Joule, presented by Headington Company. The ten day event, running from April 5–14, features fantastical interactive spaces and themed bars. A range of artist talks, panel discussions, and tours will be taking place at the fair and in surrounding institutions. Highlights include a conversation between artist Karen Gunderson and Amon Carter Museum curator Maggie Adler at the Nasher Sculpture Center, and a discussion on the topic “Who’s Afraid of Cartoony Figuration?” at the Dallas Contemporary.
