Train Converted Into Travelling Collaborative Art Gallery
Doug Aitken's latest project is a mobile museum that will go from the Atlantic coast to the Pacific this September.
Artist Doug Aitken‘s latest project, Station to Station: A Nomadic Happening, puts art and innovation on railway tracks by transforming a train into a travelling art studio that is set to run cross country from New York to San Francisco.
Aitken‘s vision is to bring together artists, musicians, designers and creatives from different fields to collaborate on this public art project.
The train sets off from New York in September and for 3 weeks will make ten stops along the way to San Francisco. At each stop, an exhibition of art, film, literature and other location specific experiences will be on display along with the train’s existing carriages of curated studios. Several artists, writers, designers and even chefs will be featured in this cross-country exhibition.
