> DESCRIPTION

In the late 60s and early 70s Aton painted murals in homes in both Chicago and his home state of Kentucky. A disciple of and frequent collaborator with composer, poet and Afrofuturist pioneer, Sun Ra (1914–1993), Aton created murals combining references to and imagery from ancient Egypt, Christianity and outer space. This collection of over 200 slides documents Aton’s murals through image and sound, providing an intimate glimpse into the domestic lives of an African-American community on the cusp of cultural transformation. Ayé A. Aton: Space-Time Continuum marks Aton’s first solo museum presentation.
