“The Dallas Medianale–a successful biennial exhibition of video art, experimental film, new media, and expanded cinema–will return to Dallas in Summer 2019 and is now accepting submissions. In January of 2017, the first Medianale drew huge crowds to the MAC and other venues around the D/FW area for screenings, performances, and installations of media art from all over the world. Screenings of video art and experimental film, as well as intermedia performances, will be selected from an open call.
The MAC has found homes in several areas of Dallas, including its brand-new spot on South Ervay Street in The Cedars (next door to its previous location), but the nonprofit art gallery has always stayed true to its vision: bringing together contemporary artists of all disciplines under one roof.
