Ex Libris: Doug Aitken

DATE 9/8/2009

Doug Aitken remains one of the coolest artists of his generation, the consummate LA hippie-doer. When I contacted him late in the day on one of the last days of summer, asking if he might be able to put together a list of the ten most essential art or reading books in his library by, say, the end of the fall season, he replied from his i-phone within minutes, citing the deeply intriguing group here and adding a very key eleventh book for good measure. When asked how many books he held in his personal library, Aitken replied, “It always changes because I give them away to friends and strangers.” When queried about the first book he ever remembered acquiring for his personal library, he answered, “A copy of Andy Warhol’s Index in destroyed condition.” That would be the 1967 edition… Nice.

Los Angeles-based Doug Aitken is one of the most important artists of the 90s generation. His work in multi-screen video and photographic installation has literally changed the artistic landscape, incorporating architecture, film and sound in new and challenging ways. Aitken has also become one of the last decade's most incisive interviewers of other artists, filmmakers and architects, as his many books and magazine articles attest.
