Screening and presentation of the film in the presence of the artist
In Station to Station, through 62 one-minute films Doug Aitken tells of a journey aboard a train he designed and conceived as a sculpture of light in 2013. The train crossed the United States in 24 days, filming the American landscape as well as stopping along the tracks to meet strangers, artists such as Ed Ruscha, Olafur Eliasson, Urs Fischer, Lawrence Weiner, Christian Jankowski and musicians, among which Beck, Patti Smith and Thurston Moore. These encounters gave life to unique performances but also to intimate moments and conversations.
Entrance is free until capacity is reached.
Station to Station is distributed in Italia by Wanted.
