The Open Museum, 19 August–15 Nov 2020: The Carnegie Museum of Art launches its free online exhibition screening of 'migration' from its collection.
'With "migration" I wanted to create a window into the modern landscape. I traveled across the country filming inside different hotel rooms documenting the repetitious landscape that we have created. But what was there before? I wanted to look at a deeper ecological history and the friction it created.' – Doug Aitken
