The first of three videos featuring James Turrell in conversation with Doug Aitken.
James Turrell has concurrent exhibitions at the Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
This is a really good one guys.
Also, y’all left out his two installations in VEGAS BABY! Just for thoroughness sake.
In September 2013, a train will travel from the Atlantic to the Pacific. Activating the cultural landscape, Station to Station will connect artists, musicians and creative pioneers. For a short time, the most interesting place in the country will be a moving target.
Funded by Levi’s and organized by artist Doug Aitken, Station to Station will bring together artists, musicians, chefs, and others for events spanning the United States and lasting three weeks. The train is designed as a moving light sculpture and will broadcast unique content and experiences to those in its path and on the web.
For a short time, the most interesting place in the United States will be a moving target.
I was super excited about this finally coming out and then I read this sentence “…which looks like a boutique post-production firm apart from his art on the walls — Vegas-style, mirrored signage spelling out ART and NOW, and an acrylic sign for SEX.” and now I’m annoyed. 1. bad writing and 2. Vegas-style? Seriously? An Acrylic sign for SEX? Ugh.
I’m also sick so everything is annoying me just that extra little bit.
Today going through old footage we found some gems of B-Roll from a crowd scene Doug Aitken shot for his 2009 film Frontier. It would be 2 years before I would work at his studio.
