Dallas Contemporary's Enoc Perez: Liberty & Restraint

| January 16, 2018 | Calendar

Enoc Perez is best known for his paintings of modernist buildings that capture the utopian ambitions and optimism that inspired their construction. In 2015, he completed an ambitious series of paintings of New York’s Lipstick Building, which were shown at Johnson’s Glass House in Connecticut. The exhibition presented six renditions of the iconic elliptical office tower in Manhattan designed by architects Philip Johnson and John Burgee. Through the citywide exhibition Liberty & Restraint, Dallas Contemporary intends to expand upon Perez’s exhibition at the Glass House by addressing the eight Johnson-designed buildings throughout Dallas and Fort Worth—Amon Carter Museum of American Art (Fort Worth, 1961); The Beck House (Dallas, 1964); Fort Worth Water Gardens (1964); John F. Kennedy Memorial (Dallas, 1970); Thanks-Giving Square (Dallas,1976); The Crescent (Dallas,1985); Comerica Tower (Dallas, 1987); and Cathedral of Hope (Dallas, 2010).
