Sunsets Dance Party with WXYC
A global dance party inspired by Aligned by the Sun (through the revolution), the seven-channel video installation by Ghost of a Dream featuring sunsets captured around the world by artists living through the COVID-19 pandemic. During the April 2nd Friday ArtWalk, all are invited to dance together as WXYC DJs spin tunes as the sun sets on Arts Everywhere Day.
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.
The Ackland Art Museum is operating under the guidelines of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. As of March 7, 2022, masks are optional in our galleries.
