  • Fashion and art are merging next week at the Dallas Museum of Art. Beyonce’, Lady Gaga and Bjork are just a few of the artists who have worn Iris Van Herpen’s futuristic fashions. Her bold concepts often are art themselves – which is why the 32 year old designer from the Netherlands is the subject of next week’s DMA exhibit. As Jessica Diaz-Hurtado reports, Van Herpen uses 3D printing and new fabrics to create work at the intersection of fashion, technology and science.
  • Dallas’ third annual Soluna Festival, going on now in the Arts District, has major performances planned by the Dallas Symphony, Texas Ballet Theater and Dallas Black Dance Theatre. Art & Seek’s Anne Bothwell and Jerome Weeks spotted two smaller works that signal opportunities, too.
