Summary

Accompanying the artist’s first full-scale survey exhibition, this generously illustrated book explores Doug Aitken’s work across mediums, disciplines, and themes. From photography to architecture, and from video to spoken word, Doug Aitken has delved into a variety of art forms to create a provocative body of work. This volume surveys the full scope and depth of Aitken’s work: sound pieces, sculpture, architectural experiments, land art and happenings, which embrace a collaborative spirit across disciplines and beyond walls, to re-imagine the nature of what a work of art can be. Interspersed with hundreds of color illustrations, the book’s essays examine the plethora of ideas the artist tackles—from environmental decay to the end of linear time—and explain how and why Aitken challenges many artistic barriers.
