"How To Eat Your Watermelon finds him back at his confrontational best. His paintings are giant Jenga puzzles daring you to take out one last block, poised at any moment to tumble into uncomfortable corridors where race, masculinity, past, and present meet."

In his first U.S. museum solo show, Dallas-based artist Stephen Lapthisophon investigates how language and mark-making are linked to the formation of self-identity. For Stephen Lapthisophon: Concentrations 56, the artist will create a series of tableaus incorporating anachronistic objects with more recent works on paper. The gallery will feature architectural elements inspired by his studio space: exposed wood beams and drywall create a visual layering of space and materials. The DMA’s Concentrations series began in 1981 and presents project-based solo exhibitions by international emerging artists.

In her ongoing project, Annabel Daou offers her services as a fortune teller. Members of the public are solicited to partake in an intimate exchange, presenting their palms to Daou who transcribes their fortunes onto paper for a small fee.

This work explores questions of trust, intimacy and the role of the artist as intermediary between our expectations and our personal histories. Like previous projects by Daou, Fortune takes place at the intersection of writing, speech, and non-verbal modes of communication.
