Doug Aitken "Electric Earth" Closing Week Event at MOCA, Los Angeles


Join LA Pride at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA on the evening of Thursday, January 12th, as we explore the unique immersive aesthetic of artist Doug Aitken. This is a free event from 5pm to 8pm. Doug Aitken: Electric Earth, Aitken’s first North American survey, is organized as a full collaboration and dialogue with the artist. From his breakthrough installation diamond sea (1997) to his most recent event-based work Black Mirror (2011), the exhibition unfolds around the major moving-image installations that articulate his thematic interest in environmental and post-industrial decay, urban abandonment, and the exhaustion of linear time. Conceptualized as an entropic landscape suspended between city, broadcasting machine, and labyrinth, the exhibition is punctuated by the signs, sculptures, photographic images, and altered furniture—all unbound from vernacular language and culture—that Aitken has conceived over the years.
