Outset USA supports Doug Aitken's public art initiative 'Station to Station'
22 July, 2013
A three week train journey across the United States beginning September 6th in New York City and ending in San Francisco on September 28th, 'Station to Station: the Nomadic Happening' is an art experience created by Doug Aitken. At each of ten stops along the way, a happening will unfurl from the train and will include films, art projects, performances and concerts. These Happenings are a collaborative set of events including many different artists, writers, chefs, film makers, musicians, and architects. The train itself is comprised of nine cars and has been retrofitted to function as a film set, a music studio, a moving artwork, a kitchen, and a site of discussions.
Participating artists include: Rikrit Tiravanija, Peter Coffin, Ed Ruscha, Thomas Demand, Olafur Eliasson, Jack Pierson, Christian Jankowski, Theaster Gates, Olaf Breuning, Lawrence Weiner, Urs Fischer, Carsten Holler, Liz Glynn, Ernesto Neto, Meschac Gaba, Kenneth Anger and Kate Casanova. Musicians Beck, Cat Power, Dan Deacon, Cold Cave, Jackson Browne, Giorgio Moreder, Sigur Ros and many others join culinary talents such as Alice Waters to create a modern cultural collision moving across the landscape.
