Please join us for a virtual artist conversation between Ghost of a Dream, the artistic collaboration of Lauren Was and Adam Eckstrom, and the Ackland’s assistant curator for the collection Lauren Turner. Ghost of a Dream will discuss their commissioned installation for the Ackland, Aligned by the Sun (through the revolution), as well as their larger body of work.
This program is presented in connection with UNC’s Arts Everywhere Day and its 2022 theme “Grounded Growth,” which examines the role of art — especially the ways in which it was able to uplift and connect — during COVID.

About Aligned by the Sun (through the revolution)
Aligned by the Sun (through the revolution) is a seven-channel video installation created specifically for the Ackland Art Museum that uses the formal positioning of the horizon line to connect each video of the sun. By overlaying images of a setting sun that align vastly different and often non-neighboring locations, Ghost of a Dream’s Aligned by the Sun (through the revolution) offers entry points to important conversations around equality, location, migration, and the environment. On view through July 3, 2022.
