México Inside Out: Themes in Art Since 1990 is one of the largest and most ambitious exhibitions in over a decade to examine contemporary art of central Mexico and Mexico City from the 1990s to the present day. Organized by curator Andrea Karnes, the exhibition is the first of its kind to be presented in North Texas.
Terry Haggerty draws on the vocabulary of abstract art to create his illusory paintings and large-scale wall works. The artist’s central motif is created by painting patterned lines that alternate a light and dark color, such as white and blue. When juxtaposed, these colors play off of each other, appearing to advance and recede (as seen in Kinetic Friction, 2009).

The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth partners with film critic Christopher Kelly to host regular "Modern Cinema" screenings - sneak previews of critically acclaimed titles, unsung highlights from the film festival circuit, and newly restored classic films - on a monthly basis. Kelly introduces the films, and closes with a Q&A session. Film titles will be announced 2 weeks in advance. Screenings are held in the Museum's auditorium.
In a career-crowning, sure-to-be-Oscar-nominated performance, Dame Judi Dench plays an Irish woman who teams with an unemployed journalist (Steve Coogan) to search for the son she was forced to give up for adoption a half-century earlier. Directed by the great Stephen Frears (Dangerous Liaisons, The Queen), Philomena moves effortlessly from comedy to heartbreak and back again; and the based-on-a-true-story screenplay (by Coogan and Jeff Pope) poses rich, complicated questions about religious, class and the nature of forgiveness.
