Jane and Louise Wilson’s large-scale installation Dreamtime™ returns to history as an “aesthetic proposition” within the political and post-political eras, from the 1960s to the present. Dreamtime™ also examines how the political and technological power that underscores the international space program is manifested through architecture.


Generous support of this exhibition is provided by the C. Christine Nichols Donor Advised Fund at the Community Foundation of Abilene and Illuminations: The Chancellor's Arts & Culture Initiative.
