|Doug Aitken: sleepwalkers Happening
featuring a performance by Cat Power
Friday, February 2, 2007
9:00 P.M.–12:00 A.M.
PopRally is delighted to present a Doug Aitken: sleepwalkers Happening featuring a performance by Cat Power
This event, hosted by Doug Aitken and PopRally, includes a reception, musical performances by Cat Power and street drummers Ryan Donowho and Hisham Bharoocha, storytelling by Melissa Plaut, and other surprise guests. A unique commissioned poster, created for the event by the Chicago artist Mat Daly in collaboration with Doug Aitken, will be distributed to guests who attend.
Attendees are encouraged to visit Doug Aitken: sleepwalkers before the event. Presented by MoMA and the New York–based public art organization Creative Time, sleepwalkers is a major public artwork comprising eight large-scale moving images projected onto six of the Museum's exterior walls, enlivening the building's architecture with the nocturnal journeys of five city dwellers played by Tilda Swinton, Donald Sutherland, Chan Marshall (Cat Power), Seu Jorge, and Ryan Donowho. The exhibition is on view nightly, January 16–February 12, 5:00–10:00 p.m., and is visible from various vantage points around the Museum, on Fifty-third and Fifty-fourth streets, and in The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden. The Sculpture Garden is open to the public free of charge during these nightly projections.
PopRally would like to thank 10 Cane Rum, Peroni, The Mercer Hotel, and the Millennium Hotel for their support.
