Doug Aitken’s project Station to Station: A 30 Day Happening is taking over the Barbican Centre with more than 100 free events over 30 days. It brings together leading international and UK-based artists from the world of contemporary art, music, dance, graphic design and film in a programme which promises that ‘No two days will be the same’. To say that I loved it is an understatement.
You can find a lot more information on the Barbican website. Please try to visit, if you can. It’s definitely worth it. Apart from some special events, it is free. There are things you can dip in and out of, and spend rest of the time hanging out in the roof terrace or other spaces. Take a book, make a day out of it. It was my first visit to the Barbican and I wonder why on earth I hadn’t been there before. Beautiful. Inspirational.
