About

The project is the first to be selected as part of the Sky Arts Ignition Series, a new funding initiative which will see Sky Arts partner with six leading arts organisations over the next three years, to invest directly in the creation of new ground-breaking art works, events and performances. Sky Arts Ignition: Doug Aitken – The Source is a part of the 2012 Liverpool Biennial. Aitken’s first public realm installation in the UK, The Source will showcase the artist’s pioneering approach to public art. Creative visionaries of all ages and backgrounds, working across different art forms, will consider two questions: where does the creative idea start and how is it realised? Participants sharing their thoughts with Aitken include David Adjaye, Devendra Banhart, Beck, Thomas Demand, Liz Diller, William Eggleston, Jacques Herzog, Mike Kelley, Lucky Dragons, James Murphy, Philippe Parreno, Richard Phillips, Jack Pierson, Stephen Shore, Paolo Soleri, Tilda Swinton, Ryan Trecartin and Jack White
