Levi’s enables public art project 2013: Station to StationThis September Levi’s enables the public art project Station to Station: A Nomadic Happening by Doug Aitken.
The project will bring artists, musicians, and creative pioneers such as Dan Deacon, Nite Jewel, No Age and Dave Hickey to name but a few, together with places and people to perceive unconstrained art and culture. For three weeks a train designed by Aitken will drive from New York City to San Francisco, stopping along the way at 10 stations that have been curated by Aitken.
Station to Station will awaken the spirit of cooperation and invites Levi’s fans worldwide to explore the modern frontier. Supported by several institutions like the MoMA PS1, the Carnegie Museum of Art and others, the income of the ticket sales and donations will be split between their associate partners to make sure that programs and exhibitions in the next year are promoted.
Doug Aitken, multimedia artist, comments: “This is a dynamic cultural journey, a steady search for new horizons in our fast moving culture. Based on fundamental questions like; who are we? Where are we going? And recently: How do we express ourselves? – We intend to present a modern cultural manifesto with the project. For a short time there will be a moving object that will be the most interesting part of the country.”
Subsequent to the trip across the USA the project will be developed by museum programs and the publication of a Station to Station documentary film.
