Publisher's Description

The signed edition includes a slip signed by the artist and bound into the inside back cover.

This comprehensive new book explores the career of multimedia artist Doug Aitken, following the path from his first major works in the late 1990s through to the present day. Aitken’s work encompasses large-scale film installations such as Sleepwalkers (2007), site-specific sculptures including his Underwater Pavilions (2016) installed off the coast of Catalina Island, California, and peripatetic happenings like Station to Station (2013), which saw a train containing a travelling studio cross the USA from the Atlantic to the Pacific, staging unique performance events at each stop. Weaving together images and text in an energetic composition of rhythm and movement, this authoritative volume mirrors the ways in which Aitken has approached and explored the contemporary world in his conceptual body of work across multiple mediums.

With an introduction by Jospeh Akel and a new extended essay on Aitken’s oeuvre by Daniel Birnbaum, plus archival essays and interviews with the artist by writers including Marc Spiegler, Terry Riley, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Joseph Grima, April Lamm, Susan Solomon, and Jörg Heiser.
