The Mac

Three very different artists take over the McKinney Avenue Contemporary this weekend. Mexican-based artist Joy Laville's paintings return to Dallas for her first exhibition in 30 years, featuring work from five decades of painting. In the square gallery, Dallas-based collaborative duo Chuck and George create an immersive installation "channelling 1970s kitsch." In their crazy world you'll find tech pop microwaves filled with "turducken gravy boat, sweet piglet pussy pie, and melting parfaits of flattery, create a fantastical tower of lights." The press release describes it as comic and disturbing. There will also be a display of Flor Garduño's photography. Swing by the opening reception at 5:30 p.m. Saturday at the MAC (3120 McKinney Avenue) or see the work through May 9. Admission is free. More information at the-mac.org.
Sat., March 21, 5:30 p.m.; Wednesdays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Starts: March 21. Continues through May 9, 2015
