Join us in Singapore as we celebrate the launch of Doug Aitken's most extensive monograph to date, 'Works 1992–2022'. At the first event for this landmark publication, Aitken will be in conversation with Art & Market founder Nadya Wang, discussing Aitken's expansive practice and the making of this ambitious new book.

Free event, seat priority goes to pre-registered guests.

This book explores the career of the artist, following the path from his first major works in the late 1990s through to the present day. Aitken's work encompasses large-scale film installations such as 'Sleepwalkers' (2007), site-specific sculptures including his 'Underwater Pavilions' (2016) installed off the coast of Catalina Island, California, and peripatetic happenings like 'Station to Station' (2013), which saw a train containing a travelling studio cross the USA from the Atlantic to the Pacific, staging unique performance events at each stop. Weaving together images and text in an energetic composition of rhythm and movement, this authoritative volume mirrors the ways in which Aitken has approached and explored the contemporary world in his conceptual body of work across multiple mediums.

With an introduction by Joseph Akel and a new extended essay on Aitken's oeuvre by Daniel Birnbaum, plus archival essays and interviews with the artist by writers including Marc Spiegler, Terry Riley, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Joseph Grima, April Lamm, Susan Solomon, and Jörg Heiser.

Enjoy a special 15% discount on 'Works 1992–2022' from now until 4 December 2022 (pick-up only). Pick your book up at our event and get it signed by Doug Aitken himself!

This event is organised by STPI and MACK.
