Faurschou Foundation is pleased to present a solo exhibition by the American artist Doug Aitken at Faurschou Beijing. It is the artist's first solo exhibition in mainland China.

Aitken has developed a multimedia oeuvre that spans a wide array of mediums, integrating film, sound, photography, sculpture, performance, happenings, and site-specific installations. This exhibition features three installations including the video work NEW ERA.

Aitken’s body of artwork takes the viewer into a different world, which explores ideas and takes you places that language cannot fully articulate. Through image, form, and sound, the artworks conceptualize the idea of a current world that is completely kinetic and synchronized, yet at other times a landscape that is vastly isolating.
