On October 25, 2008, the Dallas Museum of Art and amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research, held the tenth annual Two by Two for AIDS and Art auction at The Rachofsky House in Dallas, Texas. Since its inception, this event and its related activities have raised approximately $17 million for the contemporary art acquisition funds at the Dallas Museum of Art and for AIDS research and programs undertaken by amfAR. Two by Two has become the single largest annual source of contemporary art funds for the Dallas Museum of Art, and amfAR’s largest single annual fundraising event in this country.
In celebration of the major effect Two by Two has had on the Dallas Museum of Art’s collections, the DMA was proud to present TWO x TWO x TEN, an exhibition featuring a selection of works acquired with Two by Two funds. The importance of Two by Two to the Dallas Museum of Art’s contemporary art collection has been crucial in expanding its depth and range, and has launched the Museum into the front ranks of contemporary art collecting.
This brochure was produced for the exhibition TWO x TWO x TEN at the Dallas Museum of Art, October 12, 2008–January 4, 2009
