Over 90 galleries from 16 countries will head to Texas this spring for the ninth edition of the Dallas Art Fair, scheduled for April 6–9 at the Fashion Industry Gallery (F.I.G.).

This year’s outing will feature over 30 new first-time exhibitors, including Gagosian Gallery (New York/Los Angeles/San Francisco/London/Paris/Rome/Athens/Geneva/Hong Kong), Lehmann Maupin (New York/Hong Kong), Simon Lee Gallery (New York), Skarstedt Gallery (New York/London), and Shane Campbell Gallery (Chicago).

“We are excited to be participating in the Dallas Art Fair for the first time,” a representative of Gagosian told artnet News in an email, noting that “the city has a great history of arts patronage and a growing audience for contemporary art.” At its booth, the gallery will show new work by Piero Golia.

On the flip side, only 70 percent of last year’s dealers are returning, as the fair looks to improve the overall quality of its exhibitors within the constraints of the venue. That means dealers such as Andrew Edlin Gallery (New York), David Kordansky Gallery (Los Angeles), and Overduin & Co. (Los Angeles) are sitting out the 2017 fair.

However organizers remain confident in the fair’s attractiveness. “The diversification and growth of our roster is a testament to the strength of the city’s burgeoning collector community,” said Dallas Art Fair co-founder John Sughrue in a statement. “This year’s lineup is our strongest and most international to date.”

For the second year, the Dallas Museum of Art (DMA) will come away from the fair with a selection of artworks for its permanent collection picked out by senior curator of contemporary art Gavin Delahunty thanks to $100,000 in funding (double last year’s budget) courtesy of the Dallas Art Fair Foundation Acquisition Program. In addition, the fair will donate the proceeds from ticket sales to its opening gala to the DMA, the Dallas Contemporary, and the Nasher Sculpture Center.

The wider Dallas Arts Week attractions include Iris van Herpen’s DMA solo show, Pierre Huyghe at the Nasher, and exhibitions featuring Pia Camil, Taryn Simon and Keer Tanchak at the Dallas Contemporary. At its annual MTV RE:DEFINE benefit auction, the Goss-Michael Foundation will celebrate its new Billy Childish show, while the Power Station, Dallas will showcase the work of Steven Parrino.
