Fairfax Dorn On Her History and the Future of Ballroom Marfa

It’s tough to leave New York, and tougher create a cultural hub in the middle of a desert, but that’s exactly what Fairfax Dorn managed to do in 2003 when founding Ballroom Marfa, a vibrant contemporary art space in a Texas town of 2,000. With Ballroom Marfa, Fairfax explores film, music, performance, and visual art in a city where little else exists. The ultra remote Marfa might be little remembered if it weren’t for spaces and big thinking like this; now the town’s history, thanks in part to Fairfax, begins with art.
