Doug Aitken & Philippe Vergne in Conversation

Artist Doug Aitken and MOCA Director Philippe Vergne engage in conversation on the occasion of the opening of Doug Aitken: Electric Earth. Aitken’s largest survey to date, the exhibition is organized as a full collaboration with the LA-based artist and his studio. Aitken and Vergne will discuss Aitken’s uniquely immersive aesthetic; the work’s relationship to 20th-century avant-garde art, cinema, and experimental music; the nature of creativity in the 21st century; the possibilities for artmaking within our ever-mobile, ever-changing, image-based contemporary world; and other ideas central to the artist and the exhibition.

Doug Aitken: Electric Earth runs at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA September 10, 2016–January 15, 2017.
