Artist Doug Aitken just announced a new project, Station to Station: A Nomadic Happening, a traveling train tour that will take place over the course of three weeks in September. A press release reads:

At each stop, Station to Station will curate leading figures from the art, music, culinary, literary, and film worlds for a series of cultural interventions and site-specific happenings. The Aitken designed train turned kinetic sculpture will act as a cultural studio- globally broadcasting unique content and experiences from the stops as well as on the moving train.

Each stop will feature a variety of different artists. Musicians taking part in the project include Savages, David Longstreth of Dirty Projectors, Ariel Pink, Eleanor Friedberger, Dan Deacon, No Age, Twin Shadow, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Nite Jewel and Connan Mockasin.

There will also be other artists Kenneth Anger, Olaf Breuning, Peter Coffin, Urs Fischer, Meschac Gaba, Liz Glynn, Carsten Höller, Christian Jankowski, Aaron Koblin, Ernesto Neto, Jack Pierson, Stephen Shore, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Lawrence Weiner; writers Dave Hickey, Barney Hoskyns, and Rick Moody; and chefs Alice Waters and Leif Hedendal, and the Edible Schoolyard Project. Plus, even more participants TBA.

Station to Station stops in ten different cities this September, including NYC on September 6. More details on the specific “happenings” and ticket information are forthcoming. The project “will raise funds through ticket sales and donations to support non-traditional programming at seven partner museums around the country.”

Savagestour schedule makes it seem unlikely that they’ll be on the NYC stop, but their tour does bring them here for shows on Webster Hall on July 11 (sold out) and September 12 at Terminal 5 (tickets).
