    The first in a three part video series featuring James Turrell speaking with Doug Aitken has just been posted. In this installment, Turrell and Aitken discuss perception in relation to Turrell’s installation Aten Reign (2013) at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. 

    The video was made as part of Aitken’s Station to Station project, a three week train tour in September throughout the U.S. For more information on the dates, visit: Station to Station.

    In case you missed this a few weeks ago. Stay tuned for information on the next two videos, coming soon.

    Happy Birthday Andy Warhol!

    The image above is Andy Warhol’s Self-Portrait in Fright Wig, 1986, from MOCA’s collection. Below that is a screen grab from The Figment Project, a live stream of Warhol’s grave produced by The Warhol Musuem.

    If you haven’t checked out the live stream of Warhol’s gravesite put together by The Warhol Museum and EarthCam, do it! It’s an interesting project, but also just nice to see people gathered in celebration of Warhol’s birthday.
