The Wilcox Space

John Wilcox, Untitled: Paradise, 1989, acrylic on canvas, 96 x 96 inches

The Wilcox Space, at the heart of Exposition Park in Dallas, is the former studio of the painter John Wilcox (1954-2012) and a site for the exhibition, documentation, and study of the work of artists who explore painting as medium and idea.

Between 2013 and 2018, The Wilcox Space (under the aegis of the Ioannes Project) collaborated with the O’Donnell Institute to mount a suite of exhibitions of John Wilcox’s paintings and works on paper and to publish a series of catalogues that document his career. View installations and catalogues of John Wilcox's work at The Wilcox Space and visit an online database of his work.

In Fall 2018, the O’Donnell Institute assumed stewardship of The Wilcox Space. Invited artists and guest curators collaborate to install three exhibitions each year (in fall, spring, and summer), which are documented in print publications and accompanied by events including artist interviews, public roundtable conversations, and special visits for artists, scholars, and students from area Universities.

The Wilcox Space is also a platform for graduate seminars, curatorial training, and independent research projects for the fledgling Master’s Program in Art History at the University of Texas at Dallas.
