Starting in September Doug Aitken’s art will take a journey by train. Here’s an excerpt about the project:
Aitken’s Station to Station: A Nomadic Happening tour will travel to 10 different locations by rail on a train the artist himself designed that is intended to be a “kinetic sculpture [that will] act as a cultural studio,” according to an announcement released today. The artist will curate a site-specific event at each of the Station to Station stops thanks to contributions from the likes of experimental filmmaker Kenneth Anger, artist Liz Glynn, and digital media artist Aaron Koblin. The tour will also feature music from Charlotte Gainsbourg, Dirty Projectors, Twin Shadow, and Dan Deacon.
If only Houston were one of the lucky cities! So cool. And beautiful.
