9:00 p.m., Horchow Auditorium
Join poet William V. Davis, professor of English and writer-in-residence at Baylor University (and commissioned by the DMA to write new poetry inspired by Hodges' work), and Matthew Cusick, a Dallas-based artist known for his works incorporating maps, encyclopedias, and textbooks, for a discussion of their own responses to the special exhibition Jim Hodges: Give More Than You Take, which examines how Hodges transforms both everyday and precious materials into poignant meditations on themes such as time, loss, identity, and love.
Lecture tickets are free.
Saturday, October 5–Sunday, January 12
Center for Creative Connections (C3)
C3 will host a community exchange project while Jim Hodges: Give More Than You Take is on view. The exhibition title is a reflection of Hodges’ thoughts about what it means to be an artist and to have a voice in our community. Inspired by this idea of the power of our individual voices, we are offering a chance for Dallas Museum of Art visitors to consider how they might use their voice in creative and positive ways.
Join us for the annual fall Arts District Block Party and Aurora 2013. See our newest exhibition, Jim Hodges: Give More Than You Take, and learn more about Hodges’ work through tours, family activities, performances, and more! Full schedule of events.

Paris Is Burning (1990)
Friday, October 18
10:30 p.m., Horchow Auditorium
Documentary filmmaker Jennie Livingston enters the once secret world of Harlem drag balls, where gay, black, and Hispanic men vogue and stage elaborate costume competitions in which they dress like, and parody, society’s mainstream ways. Chosen by artist Jim Hodges, whose exhibition Jim Hodges: Give More Than You Take is on view at the DMA, Paris Is Burning presents a truly dynamic perspective of a repressed culture and the society that excludes them. This film is rated R. (78 mins.)
Saturday, October 26, 1:00 p.m.
Thursday, November 7, 7:00 p.m.
Sunday, December 1, 2:00 p.m.
Saturday, January 11, 1:00 p.m.
A film made by artist Jim Hodges in collaboration with Encke King and Carlos Marques da Cruz, Untitled begins with a reflection on the early AIDS epidemic. Following a nonlinear narrative, the film brings together mainstream network news, activist footage, artists' works, and popular entertainment, referencing regimes of power that precipitated a generation of AIDS and queer activism and continues today with international struggles for freedom and expression. This film is not rated. (60 mins.)
This film was originally distributed for 2011 World AIDS Day/Day With(out) Art by Visual AIDS.
