Gabriel Dawe: Plexus no. 34

August 16, 2016September 2, 2018

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.

Gabriel Dawe: Plexus no. 34 is supported by Suzanne M. Bahan; The Brown Foundation, Inc.; Camille R. Comeau and Jay H. Hebert; Kathleen Hicks; Betty Krulik Fine Art; High Access Solutions; Brooke (Boo) Lively; Mr. and Mrs. John G. Ripperton; the William T. & Gay F. Solomon Fund of the Communities Foundation of Texas; and a gift in memory of Herbert S. Adler.

Sound and color come together in 34 songs inspired by Plexus no. 34 and selected with the help of the artist. Download the Spotify app and access our playlist here.
