James Turrell at the Guggenheim Museum – New York

James Turrell at the Guggenheim Museum – New York

June 21, 2013 through September 25, 2013 – Acclaimed for his groundbreaking explorations of perception, light, color and space, the Guggenheim presents, “James Turrell,” the first New York exhibition since 1980 dedicated to the contemporary artist, focusing specifically on the role site specificity plays in his creations.  Works from throughout Turrell’s forty year career are displayed in the museum’s Annex Level galleries, providing a complement and counterpoint to the major new installation, “Aten Reign,” which serves as the core of the exhibition and recasts the Guggenheim rotunda, in one of the most dramatic transformations of the museum ever conceived, as an enormous display space filled with shifting artificial and natural light, giving form to the air occupying the museum’s central void and proposing an entirely new way of experiencing Wright’s landmark building.
