James Turrell at the Guggenheim
American artist James Turrell continues his exploration of the perception of light, colour and space in a new self-titled exhibition at the Guggenheim museum in New York.
Considered the highlight of the show, the site-specific Aten Reign installation dramatically transforms the museum’s rotunda with its sloping cyclical ceiling that curves around the building’s interior into an enormous, illuminated void of shifting artificial and natural luminescence. A dynamic perceptual experience of the space is offered through the graduating colour emitted through the round chamber using natural and LED Light.
The installation will be on display throughout the summer from June 21 until September 25 2013. For more of Turrell’s inspiring artwork, see our report coverage of London’s recent exhibition at the Hayward Gallery, Light Show.
