Dream·Monolith·Revelation presented hard core space technology /Space Art in collaboration with the artists Akihiro Kubota ARTSAT.JP, Shen Shaomin, Liu Xin, Cristina De Middel, Charles Lindsay, Timur Si-Qin, Qin Ga, and Anton Vidokle. The exhibition explored around cosmology, specifically regarding the interactions between humans and the universe. The audiences experienced a travel of time and space in embodiment. During the trip, the audiences went through three chapters of stories successively - Departure with a Dream, Place with a Monolith, Return with a Revelation. In this story-based exhibition, however, the works were not presented simply in correspondence to the text of the story section-by-section but rather served as a process for decoding the story. The exhibition tried to define “Aerospace Art” through the lens of art and science as well as question its categorization at the realm of life.

The exhibition was curated by Fiona Wang You, the awardees of Hyundai Blue Prize Art+Tech 2021.
