Gabriel Dawe: Plexus no. 34

Exhibition Website

Aug 16 2016 - Sep 29 2019

Amon Carter Museum

Fort Worth, TX

The Amon Carter has commissioned a large-scale, site-specific installation of more than eighty miles of multicolored thread by internationally celebrated Mexican-born, Dallas-based artist Gabriel Dawe.

Words cannot do justice to the transformative power of Dawe’s sculptural marvels, which he weaves from thousands of thin strands. They look like frozen light and Technicolor vaporous mist, drawing attention to the majestic architecture and natural light of the museum’s Atrium, designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson. The Amon Carter will be the home of Plexus no. 34 for two years. [...]

Sound and color come together in 34 songs inspired by Plexus no. 34 and selected with the help of the artist. More information about the exhibition is available on the museum website.
