Gagosian will be participating in Dallas Art Fair 2017, Fashion Industry Gallery, Dallas, Texas.

The fair will take place from April 6 through April 9, 2017.

Gagosian is pleased to participate for the first time in the Dallas Art Fair with a solo booth by Piero Golia.

Following the popularity of his project Chalet Dallas at the Nasher Sculpture Center, Golia will present the Mariachi Paintings (2016), a series derived from the project’s grand finale. Chalet Dallas was the sequel to Chalet Hollywood (2013–14) in Los Angeles, a communal environment of Golia's making where an extensive program of events and gatherings occurred over the course of one year. Designed by Golia in collaboration with architect Edwin Chan, Chalet Dallas (2015–16) included textiles by Johnson Hartig, an aquarium by Pierre Huyghe, and works by Jeff Wall and Mark Grotjahn. For the grand finale, held in the grounds of the Nasher, mariachi bands played, fireworks lit up the sky, and a curtain—inscribed with the phrase that ends all Looney Tunes cartoons, “That’s all Folks!”—dropped across the large window giving onto the Chalet. For the Mariachi Paintings, Golia cut the original curtain into twelve panels and stretched them like canvases, memorializing Chalet Dallas as a series of equal parts.

In addition to the paintings is a new sculpture: a miniature model of Golia’s fictional studio after the Chalet has been dismantled. Stored wood and furniture from the Chalet interior, pieces of the finale curtain, working figures, and art materials are all cast individually in brass. With this model, Golia depicts his artistic production within an imagined studio narrative.
