David Bates in moments and history
The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth and the Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas,
present a joint exhibition of the work of artist David Bates on view February 9
through May 11, 2014. The exhibition is a retrospective of Bates's work
installed in both locations with an emphasis on painting in Fort Worth and
sculpture and works on paper in Dallas. This is the first collaboration between
the two museums. The exhibition is organized by Dr. Marla Price, director of the
Modern, and Jeremy Strick, director of the Nasher.

Dr. Price, who organized David Bates: Forty Paintings for the Modern in 1988, the
first major museum exhibition of the artist's work, says, "David Bates's
exuberant paintings, sculptures, and reliefs are memorable and treasured works
in the Modern's permanent collection. His masterful technique creates an
unforgettable portrait of a particular place and its inhabitants. He translates
his own experiences into works of art that transcend regional

The exhibition at the Modern concludes with recent work, including Bates's
self-portraits and still lifes, while the installation at the Nasher will
include a gallery devoted to the artist's studio practice, highlighting
connections among his paintings, drawings, and sculptures.

Bates has been the focus of many solo museum and gallery exhibitions, including David
Bates: The Katrina Paintings
, Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas
City, Missouri; David Bates since 1982: From the Everyday to the Epic,
Austin Museum of Art, Austin, Texas; and David Bates: Paintings from Texas

numerous group exhibitions, including Still Life Masterpieces: A Visual Feast
from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

the Frederick R. Weisman Art Foundation
, Carnegie Art Museum, Oxnard,
California; Variations on America: Masterworks from American Art Forum
, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC; and the 1987

Museum of American Art in New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Museum
of Fine Arts, Houston; and the Dallas Museum of Art. The Modern Art Museum of
