A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Doug Aitken

Faurschou Foundation / Beijing / Art

“The situation that we’re living in right now,” the artist Doug Aitken said in 2018, “the engineers are developing technology faster than the dialogue of philosophy and ethics [can address] them.” That’s a good place to start when thinking about Aitken’s precise, puzzling, completely absorbing installations and films, unmoored events in which time and space seem out of sync, a new reality inventing itself before us. Aiken’s first solo show in mainland China presents three of his installations, including 3 Modern Figures (don’t forget to breathe). —L.J.
