If there’s one thing we’ve learned about circuses in the past couple of years, it’s that it’s no longer enough to trot out some clowns or launch a human cannonball or two and expect the ticket sales to flood in. People don’t want to see mistreated animals and tired routines. Cirque du Soleil helped to move the dial on this quite a bit; they’ve been pushing the circus envelope since the mid-’80s, starting with elaborate productions and very bendable humans, then making their way up to narrative spectacles. Their latest, “Kurios,” is an exotic steampunk affair, complete with their usual mix of precision acrobatics and contortionists, and topped off with an exhilaratingly macabre selection of novelty acts including an invisible circus and a surreal dinner party/balancing act. Take it all in at Lone Star Park (1000 Lone Star Parkway, Grand Prairie) opening at 8 p.m. Friday, Feb. 17, with ongoing shows through March 26. Tickets are $25 to $250 at cirquedusoleil.co.

The Dallas Museum of Art announced that it will be the exclusive U.S. host of a major exhibition of modern Mexican art, featuring work by Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, and other giants of the first half of the 20th century. The survey of more than 200 works, including some of Rivera’s famous murals and pieces by lesser-known Mexican artists, premiered in Paris last October. The Dallas exhibition, its only appearance in the U.S. will include some pieces from the DMA collection. The DMA has a rich history of collecting and presenting Mexican art, and this exhibition offers our visitors the opportunity to explore in-depth the diverse and vibrant voices that distinguish Mexican art during the first half of the 20th century, showcases not on the greats of Mexican art but also those who may have been eclipsed on the international level by names lie Rivera and Kahlo. The exhibition helps broaden our understanding of what modern Mexican art means, and diversify the artistic narratives attributed to the country. Enjoy this meaningful exhibit, and a make a visit to the DMA part of your Spring Break festivities.
