CAA Arts Access: Doug Aitken at 303 Gallery

Join CAA Arts Access for a private evening exhibition viewing of Doug Aitken: New Era with our host Carol Finley '83BC, '86LAW, '87BUS, CAA Arts Access Committee member at 303 Gallery. We will be joined by Katy Erdman, Director, 303 Gallery, who will provide an exhibition overview.

303 Gallery presents a new installation by Doug Aitken, titled New Era. On view from April 13 through May 25, 2018, New Era is centered around 89-year-old protagonist Martin Cooper’s seemingly straightforward statements about his invention of the mobile phone and his thoughts on the future. Aitken’s film was inspired by his research into and conversations with the inventor of this ubiquitous device, and weaves the story of Cooper’s life into a poetic narrative about humanity’s history and future. Beginning with this simple introduction, Cooper’s words become the leitmotif of a gradual deconstruction of images and sounds into a dystopian landscape where nature and technology coexist.
