Doug Aitken


“Sleepwalkers” is the first U.S. large-scale public project by renowned video artist Doug Aitkin. Creative Time and The Museum of Modern Art have commissioned the artist to create a multi-screen video installation that will be projected on seven facades of the MoMA on 53rd and 54th Streets. This project will premiere on January 16, and will continue through February 12, each evening from 5pm to 10pm. The video follows several individuals through their daily pedestrian activities as they interact within a vast urban landscape. The work was filmed and produced in NYC, and has a diverse cast including Seu Jorge, Chan Marshal (Cat Power), and Donald Sutherland. The nightly viewings are free and publicly open.
