This nomadic art installation and series of happenings comes to Massachusetts 12-28 July 2019.
This July, The Trustees will present New Horizon, a travelling art installation and series of happenings by American multimedia artist and filmmaker Doug Aitken at some of its most iconic properties. Aitken is the fourth featured artist in The Trustees' Art & the Landscape public art series designed to create new experiences inspired by its iconic places.
New Horizon will traverse the Massachusetts landscape creating dynamic flashpoints for conversation, music, and assembly at select Trustees natural, coastal, and cultural properties and making surprise appearances from July 12-28, 2019.
Conceived and curated by the artist, New Horizon will feature a series of live events and experiences taking place across the state, all centered around a
mirror-surfaced hot air balloon and gondola that vividly contrasts with the natural settings of New England.
New Horizon was conceived by Doug with curator Pedro Alonzo.
