August 22 – September 2, 2017

From Dijon to Dallas features two artists chosen through an exchange between the Division of Art at SMU Meadows School of the Arts and École Nationale Supérieure d’Art (ENSA) of Dijon, France: Meadows alumni Juan Negroni (M.F.A. ’17) from Dallas and Benjamin Grivot from Dijon. The show will be curated by Sofia Bastidas, the 2016 Pollock Curatorial Fellow for Southern Methodist University, Meadows School of the Arts.

The exhibition is part of a postgraduate fellowship program launched in 2015 by the Meadows School and ENSA. This is the third year of this annual exchange, and Liliana Bloch Gallery’s second year to host. Each year, an artist is selected from each institution to spend a six-week residency on exchange at the other, which will include studio and living spaces and an exhibition in each location.

Juan Alberto Negroni is represented by Mary Tomás Gallery.
