The Pop Up Project

pop up project logoThe Pop Up Project aims to further the dialogue between NorthPark Center's world-class art collection and the surrounding art community. Inspired by the concept of pop-up stores—temporary spaces that introduce young, up-and-coming brands to a new audience—The Pop Up Project engages a rotating roster of contemporary artists living, working, and/or exhibiting in Texas, providing them with two-dimensional spaces to activate throughout the year. As new, vibrant works continue to "pop up" throughout the year at NorthPark, we hope you enjoy discovering, participating, and interacting with this initiative, including tagging your photos on social media with #PopUpProjectNP.

Shopping Center Still Life, 2019

In his work, Stephen D'Onofrio explores the relationship between physical spaces and the objects we fill them with. He frequently appropriates the visual language that accompanies mass-produced objects, drawing extensively from domestic decorative elements, such as imported vases or printed wallpaper.

In his most recent series, the artist has taken an interest in still-life painting and its trajectory from 17th century Dutch masters to the present day portrayals of assembly-line production in today's economy. He disassembles the classical composition of a still life, edging toward abstraction. Through his collision and dissection imagery, he offers a critique of the hyper-commodified art object.

This piece is located on Level One near Macy's.

Space Gaze, 2019

Leah Flook is interested in the meanings behind religious tapestries and still-lifes, often exploring and reworking their symbologies within her work. These genres are known for portraying thoughts of mortality. For example, a candle slowly burning marks the passage of time, wilting flowers show our bodies' fragility, and a skull reminds us of our soul's eventual departure from our physical beings. Flook integrates these themes within her work to create what she considers an arena for "battles" to take place between multiple opponents. When creating these arenas, Flook things about a space in which physical confines are eliminated and where thoughts can be explored freely. 

This piece is located on the southern exterior of NorthPark Center.

Archipelagos Series, 2015-Ongoing

Since arriving in the United States, Puerto Rican artist Juan Alberto Negroni is often asked where he comes from, why he moved to Dallas, and how his native land compares to Texas. Despite his willingness to explain Puerto Rico's deep political, religious, and cultural history, he frequently finds that there are certain topics that words cannot properly describe. Through his artwork, Negroni has developed a visual language that mimics the multilayering of such answers and the idiosyncrasies of his homeland.

The imagery within the Archipelagos Series evokes a sense of distance inherent to displacement and the loss of one's identity, along with the quest to reclaim and recover it. Negroni states, "While working on this series, I was looking at Puerto Rico from a geographical and ideological distance." Some of the collages suggest an abstracted representation of a bird's eye view of an island, each seeming to float aimlessly atop the ocean's surface, while others may suggest a removed depiction of Puerto Rico's native vegetation. By portraying these concepts with the use of vibrant color combinations and dynamic compositions, Negroni comments on the folkloric, preconceived, often-flawed ideas society maintains toward other countries and cultures.

Athor/Laurentia, 2019

Zeke Williams begins his digital creations in the gaming app "Noby Noby Boy" to create unique compositions. The designs continue to evolve in Adobe Illustrator, where the outlines are filled with prints either remixed or originally created by Williams. In his studio practice, each original work is printed onto canvas and presented as a continuous diptych or triptych. In Athor/Laurentia, Williams partnered with a fabricator to produce and install the designs in vinyl. Working in an exclusively digital format, Williams sees the possibilities for his artwork to become infinite, eliminating limitations often present in other classical mediums. 

This piece is located on Level One between Neiman Marcus and Dillard's.
