Artist Doug Aitken and MOCA Director Philippe Vergne will engage in conversation to launch Doug Aitken: "Electric Earth," the artist's largest survey to date, which opens to the public on Sunday, May 28.

For this special presentation, Aitken and Vergne will discuss Aitken's uniquely immersive aesthetic; the work's relationship to 20th-century avant-garde art, cinema, and experimental music; the nature of creativity in the 21st century; the possibilities for artmaking within our ever-mobile, ever-changing, image-based contemporary world; and other ideas central to the artist and the exhibition.

Within this conversational context, Aitken will also introduce the filmic documentation of his most recent project, Mirage. Mirage is an artwork that distills the recognizable structure of a house into the essence of its form and allows it to reflect, merge with, and disappear into the landscape.
