Plunge into the world of American artist Doug Aitken this summer.
In this Sydney-exclusive exhibition, see installations, objects, photographs, and vast immersive multi-screen environments that will envelop you within a kaleidoscope of moving imagery and sound.
Using light, reflection and multiplication, Aitken mesmerises visitors. His works lead us into a world where time, space, and memory are fluid concepts.
Don’t miss exhibition highlights, including Sonic Fountain II (2013/2015), a large-scale sound installation built into a rocky, earthen terrain situated within the gallery. An immersive video installation inspired by the history of mobile phone technology and its pioneer, the American engineer Martin Cooper, NEW ERA (2018) reflects on the power of communications technology as it unites and dislocates us.
