Liu Xiaodong's Borders, at the Dallas Contemporary, is a deep look at life along the US/Mexico border, presented from the artist's perspective while embedded in those communities. The oversized pieces are impressive, and the scenes convey subjects that seem to be at ease with the artist's lens, which translates to a comfortable and compelling intimacy that passes to the viewer. Borders is on view through May 2021. The Dallas Contemporary is open with timed reservations and health protocols. Exhibitions are free to the public, donations are accepted.
