Join an intimate virtual conversation between internationally recognised American artist Doug Aitken and exhibition curator Rachel Kent as they share insights on the 2021/2022 Sydney International Art Series exhibition Doug Aitken: New Era.

Interested in redefining our relationship with art, Aitken's ambitious and wide-ranging practice incorporates objects, installations, photographs and immersive multi-screen environments.

Hear directly from the artist on his fascination with motion and velocity, interdisciplinary collaborations and his love of music. The artist and curator will also reflect on their pre-pandemic travels together in California which informed the exhibition and its publication.
