Station to Station

Station to Station: A Nomadic Art Happening is a rare and exciting transcontinental arts event that will connect visual artists, writers, musicians, filmmakers and even chefs this September. The ten stop train trip/public art project is the brainchild of the ever inventive artist Doug Aitken and is funded by Levi’s.

During the three week journey, the Aitken designed train will make ten city stops where site specific art happenings and cultural interventions will take place. Station to Station aims to embrace unexpected cultural collisions and serendipitous discoveries.

The Aitken curated project will bring together such diverse participants as Kenneth Anger, Liz Glynn, Urs Fischer, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Rick Moody, the Dirty projectors, Alice Waters and Fiery Furnaces. And will be supported by cultural institutions like SFMOMA, the Carnegie Museum of Art, SITE Santa Fe, MOMA and more.
