Electric Earth: The Art of Doug Aitken
This episode profiles prominent artist Doug Aitken who for more than 20 years has shifted the perception and location of images and narratives. His multichannel video installations, sculptures, photographs, publications, happenings and architectural works demonstrate the nature and structure of our ever-mobile, ever-changing, image-based contemporary condition. In his newest piece, “Underwater Pavilions,” he creates a conversation with the viewer to become fully present and immersed in the sea. The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA housed the exhibit “Doug Aitken: Electric Earth” in 2016 that ran through 2017.
