The Museum of Modern Art and Creative Time present Doug Aitken’s Sleepwalkers. This nighttime installtion comprises eight large-scale moving image projected around the Museum and on its facades, enliving the architecture with the nocturnal journeys of five city inhabitants – a bicycle messenger (played by Ryan Donowho), an electrician (Seu Jorge), a postal worker (Chan Marshall), a businessman (Donald Sutherland), and an office owrker (Tilda Swinton) – as they awaken in the evening and make thier way into the city.
