See works from over two decades of Doug Aitken’s career.

For more than 20 years, Doug Aitken’s multichannel video installations, sculptures, photographs, publications, happenings and architectural works have provided insights into the nature and structure of our mobile, ever-changing, image-based contemporary condition. Rooted in interdisciplinary collaborations and the broad availability of images, his work looks at the cool but relentless human, industrial, urban and environmental entropy that defines 21st-century existence. Organized as a collaboration and dialogue with the artist, Doug Aitken: Electric Earth at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA is Aitken’s first North American survey; it presents output from his breakthrough installation diamond sea (1997) to his most recent event-based work, Black Mirror (2011). 152 N. Central Ave., downtown, 213.625.4390. moca.org
