Station to Station: A Nomadic Happening
Amtrack train, LED lights
Aitken is gathering a group of artists and musicians and then sending them off cross-country on an Amtrak train. In September, over the course of three weeks, they’ll make 10 stops at train stations in cities like Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles where they’ll put on unique cultural events that celebrate each town’s own creative community. Some participants include: Kenneth Anger, Urs Fischer, Carsten Höller, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Ariel Pink, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Dan Deacon, Dave Hickey, Alice Waters and many more. I’d like to catch a ride on that train, please!
