Station to Station at Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi

Station to Station di Doug Aitken
in the presence of the artist

In collaboration with Lo Schermo dell’Arte Film Festival, Palazzo Grassi – Punta della Dogana hosts the screening of Station to Station, the first feature-length film directed by American artist Doug Aitken – Golden Lion for Career Achievement at the 1999 Venice Biennale.

In Station to Station, through 62 one-minute films Doug Aitken tells of a journey aboard a train he designed and conceived as a sculpture of light in 2013. The train crossed the United States in 24 days, filming the American landscape as well as stopping along the tracks to meet strangers, artists such as Ed Ruscha, Olafur Eliasson, Urs Fischer, Lawrence Weiner, Christian Jankowski and musicians, among which Beck, Patti Smith and Thurston Moore. These encounters gave life to unique performances but also to intimate moments and conversations.
