The Art Galleries at TCU

TEMPORARILY CLOSED

The Art Galleries at TCU will remain closed through the rest of the spring 2020 semester. We are busy reconfiguring our programming that includes Raphaël Barontini’s exhibition “Caribbean Fantasia” and our MFA and BFA exhibitions. We have several solutions in the pipeline to present their work online that offers different ways to engage with the artists and their artworks. Look for updates on our socials and check our Upcoming Events page on our website as things develop.

In the meantime, we are adding content to our online resources so you can continue to experience what we do in the galleries. You can explore those online tools below. We will be posting all new materials to our Facebook pages (Fort Worth Contemporary Arts / Moudy Gallery), Instagram feed, and YouTube channel over the coming months.  Follow us there to get the most up-to-date information. Please contact us at theartgalleries@tcu.edu with any questions you may have about our programing or online materials.

We hope you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy. Please continue to follow guidelines for social distancing until we can welcome you back to campus!

Our best wishes,
TCU Art Galleries Director & Gallery Manager

“Circles” by Alejandra Lopez, and the BFA Graphic Design class of 2020

At this time of year, we are usually working with our MFA and BFA students who are busy making final preparations for their thesis exhibitions in Moudy Gallery. However, as the galleries are closed, we are making plans to reschedule our shows for a later date. In the meantime, our MFAs are producing independent projects they are presenting at Blind Alley Projects, a unique exhibition and project space here in Fort Worth, Texas. And our BFAs are working on virtual viewing experiences for their work. Check out the work of our BFA Studio Art students on their Instagram page, and our BFA Graphic Design students on their own website!

TCU Graduate students and alumni are selected to serve as Guest Curators and are advised and supported by the staff of The Art Galleries at TCU through the entire exhibition-making process.

The Art Galleries at TCU are a dynamic cultural resource presenting unique exhibitions and projects by inspiring contemporary artists. Through a rigorous curatorial process of research, creative collaboration and interdisciplinary partnerships, the galleries showcase excellent artistic practice and high-quality art, while supporting experimentation and innovation. To support students and faculty, the galleries act as a catalyst for critical dialogue and provide a vital avenue for professional development through investigation of contemporary art practices.

 

Moudy Gallery

 

Located in the same building that houses the School of Art, Moudy Gallery showcases student work, including exhibitions by undergraduates and MFA students. This 900-square-foot space also functions as a responsive place for one-off or pop-up projects that students and faculty develop. TCU regularly shows its support for local professional artists by providing a collaborative environment in the Moudy Gallery as a testing ground for work-in-progress. Exhibitions or events of this kind help artists get involved in numerous ways and significantly benefit TCU students by enabling them to develop their professional networks with the local creative community.

 

Fort Worth Contemporary Arts

Exhibition of RAWIYA in Fort Worth Contemporary Arts

RAWIYA, “We Do Not Choose Our Dictators”

 

Fort Worth Contemporary Arts (FWCA) is a satellite exhibition space located a few blocks from the School of Art, on the edge of the TCU campus. Situated on West Berry Street, a busy urban corridor, this 2,000-square-foot gallery is TCU’s public-facing art venue. It offers a great opportunity for students, faculty, staff and alumni to engage with the Dallas-Fort Worth community.

At FWCA, the curatorial focus revolves around national and international artists at different stages of their career. It often includes work that has never been shown in Texas before or that is made on-site during a residency period. This concentration means students have close access to high-quality art and can critically engage with artists on a one-on-one basis in the gallery.

Fort Worth Contemporary Arts is located at 2900 W. Berry St. on the edge of the TCU Campus, Fort Worth, TX 76109.

Opportunities for Students

Students can volunteer or intern as gallery attendants. Interns are typically assigned responsibilities and research, such as overseeing social media for the galleries and researching artists’ work for future exhibition projects.

In addition, graduate students are assigned to the galleries each semester and complete weekly tasks including installation/deinstallation of exhibitions, delivery of live events and maintenance of the permanent art collection.

The Art Galleries at TCU are home to exhibitions from regional and international artists, students, faculty and alumni. To see the upcoming exhibitions in the galleries, please visit our event calendar.
