Don't miss the Oak Cliff Cultural Center new exhibition of "Punjabi Cowboy" featuring the work of Dallas-based artist Usama Khalid.
In Punjabi Cowboy, Khalid pays homage to immigrant fathers, who like his own, move their families in search of opportunity. The paintings layered with collaged photographs and fabrics “touch on pivotal moments in his father’s life”. Tender in their ex*****on, they embody the bond he has to Pakistan. His sculptural self-portraits further explore his Pakistani identity and the complex relationship to one’s homeland.

Exhibition through: NOW – February 11, 2023
Office Hours: Tuesday- Saturday from 12-6 p.m.

Check out artist Andrea Tosten new exhibition "She Blinded Them With Science" at South Dallas Cultural Center.

She Blinded Them With Science continues Andrea Tosten's body of work using text and pattern to explore social constructs, binary thinking, and the nature of existence. Her works on paper incorporate the processes of hand-lettering, drawing, origami and the zoetrope. Working with a minimal amount of materials is important to her to convey a silent strength with a sense of the ephemeral nature of each moment in reflection upon a prominent figure of my culture, Queen Nanny, leader of the Windward Jamaican Maroons, who was almost erased from history.

When: Exhibition through February 4, 2023

Moody Performance Hall is exited to bring you "BE MORE CHILL" presented by Junior Players.

Jeremy Heere is just an average teenager. That is, until he finds out about "The Squip" - a tiny supercomputer that promises to bring him everything he desires most. But is being the most popular guy in school worth the risk? Blending the contemporary with retro sci-fi, Be More Chill takes on the competing voices in all of our heads. And ultimately proves, there's never been a better time in history to be yourself.

The Oak Cliff Cultural Center is pleased to present Punjabi Cowboy, featuring the work of Dallas-based artist Usama Khalid. The exhibition runs January 14 – February 11, 2023 at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center and opens with a reception and communal Punjabi BBQ on Saturday, January 14, 6:00 – 8:00 pm.

A first-generation Pakistani-American, Khalid’s miniature paintings and self-referential sculptures address memory, identity, food, immigration, terrorism and Pakistani culture.
In Punjabi Cowboy, Khalid pays homage to immigrant fathers, who like his own, move their families in search of opportunity. The paintings layered with collaged photographs and fabrics “touch on pivotal moments in his father’s life”. Tender in their ex*****on, they embody the bond he has to Pakistan. His sculptural self-portraits further explore his Pakistani identity and the complex relationship to one’s homeland.

Unbound from working in the traditional mediums of art, Khalid began implementing cooking and social gatherings into his work as a graduate student. Alongside his exhibition of paintings and sculpture, Khalid will organize a communal gathering centered around Punjabi BBQ to coincide with the reception. Punjabi BBQ has its own identity fusing Texas brisket with Punjabi spices. Exploring the dichotomy of his identity as a Pakistani-American through food, Khalid feels he can “recall the joy of past family gatherings and bring a humanitarian aspect to his work”. It is an honoring of his father, his specific identity, and his homeland.

Usama Khalid was born in Lahore, Pakistan in 1993, and raised in North Texas. He spent every summer in Pakistan through his childhood and teenage years. He received his BFA in painting from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2018, and his MFA in Intermedia from Southern Methodist University in 2021. Usama has presented his work in exhibitions, cookouts, and other events at the Dallas Museum of Art, SweetPass Sculpture Park, 500X Gallery and the Oak Cliff Cultural Center. He lives in Dallas, Texas with his fiancé and three dogs.
