Station to Station
Event Info: (312) 322-4269 stationtostationchicago.eventbrite.com
Known for his grand-scale, multidisciplinary, site-specific happenings—e.g., projections on the side of MoMA (sleepwalkers) and the Hirshhorn Museum (Song 1)—Doug Aitken situates his latest project on a train chugging along from New York City to San Francisco. Stopping in nine cities along the way, Station to Station rolls into Union Station this eve, broadcasting unique content by contemporary artists working in various media, including Kenneth Anger, Theaster Gates' Black Monks of Mississippi, Thurston Moore, Urs Fischer, No Age, White Mystery, Mavis Staples and others. The train itself is designed as a kinetic light scultpture. Train your eyes on this spectacle.
