Artist Mark Dion retraces the footsteps of several 19th-century explorers in Texas, collecting materials to form a site-specific exhibition. One of the most well-regarded living artists today, Dion is part explorer and part historian; part naturalist and part collector of curiosities. His large-scale installations evoke the past in their materials and ethos, but they address today’s culture head-on with intellect and humor.

More than 150 years after the Texas explorers he followed, "The Perilous Texas Adventures of Mark Dion" enhances understanding of the past and ultimately brings it to life in the present day.
