The exhibition brings together more than 50 works in various media that have entered the DMA’s collection within the past five years. A majority of the works will be on display for the first time since entering the Museum’s collection, including seven new acquisitions made in February of this year. The Dallas Museum of Art has one of the leading collections of contemporary art in any encyclopedic museum in the country.

The works on view in Never Enough entered the DMA’s collection between 2009 and 2014 and were produced from the 1960s to the present. The Museum’s recent acquisitions of photographic works are a highlight of the exhibition, emphasizing the DMA’s focus on photography as a conceptual tool, and including artists such as Michele Abeles, Will Benedict, Lucas Blalock, Josh Brand, Sara Cwynar, Douglas Huebler and Erin Shirreff. In addition, the DMA will premiere for the first time outside of Asia a body of nine sculptural photographs from 2006 by Yuki Kimura, which represents the largest holding of the Japanese artist’s work outside of her native country.

The exhibition will also include a new work by conceptual artist Darren Bader—obi and/with SCOBY; oak with/and smoke; owl and/with towel; oar with/and store; oil with/and mohel; oat and/with note; orc with/and fork—whose elements will expand beyond the exhibition galleries into the Museum Store and elsewhere. Additional highlights include a large-scale video installation by Charles Atlas and interactive pieces by Atsuko Tanaka and Franz Erhard Walther, both on public view for the first time.
