A 30 Day Happening
A Project by Doug Aitken

27 Jun—26 Jul


For 30 days this summer, Doug Aitken’s project Station to Station: A 30 Day Happening, takes over the Barbican Centre with more than 100 free events over 30 days, with special ticketed events every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

This ‘living exhibition’, brings together a fusion of leading international and UK-based artists from the world of contemporary art, music, dance, graphic design and film in a jam-packed programme.

No two days will be the same, with rehearsals, performances and conversations in the Art Gallery, vinyl records being pressed, immersive yurt installations in our outside spaces and a new interactive digital laser commission in the Curve.

In creative partnership with The Vinyl Factory
