Like a Rhinestone Spider

On Sunday the Dallas Museum of Art (1717 North Harwood St.) premieres Give More Than You Can Take, the first survey exhibition of American installation artist Jim Hodges. The New York-based Hodges has been working since 1987, and Give More Than You Can Take features 80 pieces from throughout his career, including the DMA’s own “and still this.” Hodges works with a wide range of material, from paper to granite to glass to rhinestones, which he shapes into spiderwebs and into boulders that he partially covers in iridescent foil. Hodges has also been an honoree of TWO X TWO for AIDS and Art, a fundraising foundation for the DMA; and amFAR, the Foundation for AIDS Research. Give More Than You Can Take runs until January 12, and the artist is giving a lecture at the museum on Thursday to talk about his work and how he prepared for the exhibition.
