Levi’s Station to Station public art project kicked off last week and has already stopped in three major US cities. We’ve been following this exciting multi-event train ride, curated by artist Doug Aitken for the last few days and it’s a really ambitious experience.

Station to Station connects artists and musicians, showcasing their diverse talents and works over a three week mammoth train journey across America. It started in New York last week and makes the journey from the east to west coast, stopping off at nine additional cities (details are at the bottom of this post) mimicking the movement by pioneers in Gold Rush era America.

So far it looks like pretty inspiring stuff: New York kicked off with performances by Ariel Pink, No Age, Yoshimio and Boredoms as well as The Kansas City Marching Cobras (a unique, region-specific African American marching band that merges traditional dance with aspects of voodoo).

The music was accompanied by art from Kenneth Anger, Urs Fisher, Liz Glynn, Carsten Höller, and Ernesto Neto. These hand-picked artists were commissioned to envision a yurt that visitors could explore and interact with on the night. They were joined by a collection of Levi’s® yurts that celebrated local artisans and products associated with the jeans brand: Folk Fibers, Cobra Boots, Chimayo, and Junkyard Jeans.

  • Mais cet appui n’a rien de très étonnant quand on connaît cheap nfl jerseysla proximité entre le site internet et le Parti pirate. Début mai, l’ancien porte-parole de Pirate Bay, Peter Sunde, s’est lancé dans les Européennes. Son programme : défense de l’Internet libre, de la transparence gouvernementale, ou encore favoriser un plus grand respect des droits individuels. Sans surprise, ce candidat avait reçu le soutien du Parti pirate Finlandais.Il portera la bannière du parti pour les élections et sera candidat à la présidence de la Commission européenne avec Amelia Andersdotter.

  • En France, le Parti pirate présentera des listes dans six des huit cheap nfl jerseyscirconscriptions, avec pas moins de 30 candidats en Île-de-France et pour les Français à l’étranger. En plus de ça, le mouvement sera présent dans une quinzaine d’autres pays européens.

  • Aux municipales,cheap nfl jerseys Freddy Vasseu se présentait en tant que membre du Parti pirate sur une liste de centre droit à Port-Lès-Valence. Résultat des élections, cheap nfl jerseysil est élu au conseil municipal de la ville dès le premier tour. Le Parti pirate compte également 2 autres élus municipaux.
