Mirage Detroit by Doug Aitken Staff Pick

When: Wed., Oct. 10, 8 p.m. 2018
Price: Free, RSVP required
Defined as an optical illusion caused by atmospheric conditions, a mirage often looks like something real, like a sheet of water across a hot road. In the case of revered contemporary artist Doug Aitken, a mirage is a vessel for conversation. Mirage Detroit is a sculpture constructed inside downtown’s long-abandoned former State Savings Bank. The immersive installation, in the form of a suburban American home made out of mirrors, will reflect the space that encases it and the unique interior it creates. The installation will also feature lighting by Andi Watson — known for his stage work with Radiohead, as well as the interior of Detroit’s Deluxx Fluxx. Jónsi of Sigur Rós will also perform.
