Dallas’ Erin Cluley Gallery announced today that Cluley Projects, a new location in West Dallas, will open on Saturday, April 17. Nell Potasznik Langford will direct the new satellite space, which will operate under the auspices of the Erin Cluley Gallery. The primary focus of Cluley Projects will be on regional artists, and an exhibition of the works of Dallas-based artist Xxavier Edward Carter will inaugurate the space.
Cluley Projects will also host independent curatorial projects, and according to a statement from the gallery, “provide opportunity for partnerships with other galleries and institutions, and give Erin Cluley Gallery’s main roster of artists the platform to present experimental or transitional bodies of work.”
“I am thrilled to be bringing on Nell Potasznik Langford to the ECG team. Her passion for the arts and long-standing relationships in the Dallas community will be invaluable to the gallery’s expansion. Nell will lead the charge in tapping further into our cultivation of the regional artist community and in presenting an exciting program of exhibitions for the Cluley Projects space.”
According to Carter, his exhibition, titled Circulate: 7 Works on Paper by Xxavier Edward Carter (which runs until May 15), is an examination of the abstract and sometimes unintelligible nature of wealth. “It’s not the flex of having the item but the serial number that proves authenticity, that these things are unique to the owner, and that ownership elevates the owner in society, that having things makes you more entitled to having things, when really you have the right kind of paper trail.”
