Tomorrow, October 11, at the San Antonio International Airport, there is a dedication celebration for yet another new installation by Dallas-based artist Gabriel Dawe. The site-specific installation, titled Plexus c18, was created using approximately 90 miles of colored thread and loosely resembles an airplane and its contrail. The work was collaboratively commissioned by Blue Star Contemporary, the City of San Antonio, Public Art San Antonio, and the city’s international airport, and is expected to be on view for three years.
This isn’t Dawe’s only large-scale installation currently on view in Texas—earlier this year, the Amon Carter in Fort Worth opened a new piece by Dawe that will be on view through 2018. Dawe also has a show closing this week at the Amarillo Museum of Art.
