This event has ended.

In concurrent exhibitions at 303 Gallery's 22nd street and 21st street spaces, Doug Aitken utilizes multiple media to create psychological environments that are at once unique, familiar and alien.

For the inaugural exhibition in 303 Gallery's 21st street space, Aitken presents "Migration", the first in a 3-part cycle of installations titled "Empire." In “Migration” the movements of wild North American migratory animals are transposed upon the ubiquitous space of modern roadside hotels and motels. As the wild birds and animals inhabit these mysteriously vacant and sterile interiors we’re taken on a haunting odyssey through the contemporary American landscape. With the film alternating between three billboards within the gallery space, the viewer is left to determine his own place in the often desolate and alienating transitory spaces which man inhabits.
