Art Nerd New York | Los Angeles

We’re excited about Station to Station!!

Everyone here at Art Nerd City Guides is pretty freaking excited about this project coming up in September! Watch the trailer and begin to imagine how amazing it will be to watch Doug and friends (Olaf, Urs, and Rirkrit) inside a ‘train turned kinetic sculpture’ broadcasting artnerdy cultural interventions and site-specific happenings.  #EPIC

Station To Station: A Nomadic Happening from Doug Aitken Workshop on Vimeo.

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.

Over the course of three weeks this September, a train will travel from New York City to San Francisco making ten stops along the way.  At each stop, Station to Station will curate leading figures from the art, music, culinary, literary, and film worlds for a series of cultural interventions and site-specific happenings.  The Aitken designed train turned kinetic sculpture will act as a cultural studio— globally broadcasting unique content and experiences from the stops as well as on the moving train.  Long after departing the last station, Station to Station will leave an indelible creative mark on its local and global audience—opening eyes and shifting perceptions.

Artists scheduled to collaborate to bring Station to Station to life include Kenneth Anger, Olaf Breuning,  Peter Coffin,  Urs Fischer, Meschac Gaba, Liz Glynn, Carsten Höller, Christian Jankowski, Aaron Koblin, Ernesto Neto, Jack Pierson, Stephen Shore, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Lawrence Weiner; musicians Ariel Pink, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Connan Mockasin, Dan Deacon, David Longstreth of Dirty Projectors, Eleanor Friedberger, Nite Jewel, No Age, Savages, and Twin Shadow; writers Dave Hickey, Barney Hoskyns, and Rick Moody; and chefs Alice Waters and Leif Hedendal, and the Edible Schoolyard Project. More participants will be announced throughout the summer.

Following the cross-country experience, the project will continue to evolve through the museum program, the release of a Station to Station documentary, and a published book.
