Running nearly eight weeks this spring, internationally renowned artist Doug Aitken will illuminate the entire facade of the Hirshhorn’s iconic building, transforming it into “liquid architecture” and an urban soundscape. Using eleven high-definition video projectors, Aitken will seamlessly blend imagery to envelop the Museum’s exterior, creating a work that redefines cinematic space.
“SONG 1” allows visitors to the National Mall a chance to witness the first-ever work of 360-degree convex-screen cinema.
