Two culturally rich exhibitions lured nearly 1,000 aficionados to the Design District’s Dallas Contemporary. Puerto Rican artist Dzine shared Victory, a celebration of souped-up dream cars accompanied by a nine-piece mariachi band who appropriately played “Low Rider.” The DC also featured Los Americanos, a six-chapter video reflection on cinematic influences in the Lone Star State created by Texas artists Morehshin Allahyari, Joshua Bienko, Chivas Clem, Bogdan Perzynski, and Hillary Holsonback. Feeling inspired: Niven Morgan, Shelby Wagner, Kimberly Nieves, Cindy Lefferts, Karla McKinley, Carolyn Sorter, Markus and Lilly Newbauer, Hector Gonzalez, and Chiara Keeling.
