Ballroom Marfa is proud to participate in the inaugural Texas Contemporary art fair at the George R. Brown Convention Center this coming October. Featuring presentations from 60 galleries, Texas Contemporary will showcase contemporary work from the most innovative, progressive and driven artists from around the world.

Several special projects will be presented at the fair, including installations by Andy Colqui (presented by Blaffer Museum and represented by Fredric Snitzer Gallery); Edgar Orlaineta (represented by Steve Turner Contemporary); and Morgan Lehman’s Paul Villinski (who presented his project, Emergency Response Studio — a solar-powered, mobile artist’s studio repurposed from a salvaged FEMA-style trailer — at Ballroom Marfa in March 2009). New York City’s Gering & Lopez will also present a very special, large scale work by Ballroom alum and board member Leo Villareal (who participated in our first show, Optimo, back in 2004).
