An Artist With A Really Big Pair of Ears

There aren't many artists with the balls to install a set of neon Playboy bunny ears on the side of the road. That's exactly what Richard Phillips did out in the wild West Texas town of Marfa. Of course, it encouraged the rest of the world the to debate the fine line between advertisement and art before Phillips was forced to take the sculpture down. Dallas Contemporary was quick to sweep up the piece and give Phillips an exhibition to boot. See his exhibition Negation of the Universe opening at 9 p.m. Friday and running through August 10. Julian Schnabel's An Artist Has a Past (Puffy Clouds and Strong Cocktails) runs concurrently. The gallery is at 161 Glass St.
Fri., April 11, 9 p.m.-midnight; Sundays, 12-5 p.m.; Tuesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: April 11. Continues through Aug. 10, 2014
