A hard place brings together work by artists and architects from Germany, Ireland,
France and Italy as well as a piece by Dallas's Cunningham Architects produced
especially for the show. A unifying concern in the work is the legacy of post-war
modernist architecture. The artists of a hard place employ highly divergent
strategies across a wide variety of media to explore the theme. The exhibition
includes video art, photography, drawing, painting, textiles, sculpture, sound
recordings and the written word.

500x is kicking off the new season with the 2017 annual members show. This exhibition
will be showcasing a variety of content and style that is representative of our members.
We will also be welcoming the addition of several new members to 500x Gallery. As
the oldest artist run co-op in Texas, the idea of collaboration, finding fresh talent
and building community is what this current group hopes to continue to foster.
Come out and help us kick off the 2017 season!
