Passages to India: Alexander Gorlizki's installations in Dallas

By Rick Brettell
Alexander Gorlizki’s focus is on objects, such as "All in Threes," a hand-tufted wool rug in his exhibit at the Crow Collection of Asian Art.
TEXAS---The Crow Collection of Asian Art and the Dallas Museum of Art have simultaneously, but without coordination, commissioned two artists to create contemporary installations that evoke the arts of India. Alexander Gorlizki, whose enchanting two-room installation is at the Crow, is not of Indian origin. Gorlizki uses Indian craftspeople with whom he has collaborated for years to assist him in remaking common objects like a Rolodex, a painting, a carpet, a sculpture, a vessel and wallpaper. [link]
