Known internationally for his mesmerizing light installations, James Turrell has investigated the ways we perceive light, colour and space for over forty years. His meditative works encourage a state of reflexive vision, in which one apprehends the function of ones own senses and the materiality of light. For the artists first exhibition in a New York museum since 1980, Turrell will offer such an experience through a major site-specific project for the Guggenheim, giving shape to the air and light that occupy the museums central void. Organized in conjunction with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, James Turrell comprises onethird of a major retrospective exhibition spanning the United States during summer 2013. In addition to an extensive plates section featuring Turrells early works, his magnum opus Roden Crater (1976 ), renderings for his installation for the Guggenheim rotunda, and photographs of the installation, this exhibition catalogue will include three essays.

Descrizione libro Guggenheim Museum August 2013, 2013. Hardcover. Condizione libro: New. The artist's first solo exhibition in a New York museum since 1980, 'James Turrell' considers his long-standing explorations of perception, light, color and space with special attention to the role of site-specificity in his practice. Local audiences find new occasion to experience his work through a major new project created especially for the Guggenheim, 'Aten Reign' (2013), recasting the museum's rotunda as a volume of shifting natural and artificial light. One of the most dramatic transformations of the museum ever conceived, the installation reimagines Frank Lloyd Wright's iconic architecture--its openness to nature, its graceful curves, its magnificent sense of space and light--as one of Turrell's 'Skyspaces.' Experienced for the first time only from below, the rotunda appears not as an open void but as a mass of vibrant color that expands and contracts above the heads of visitors, and at the installation's core, daylight from the museum's oculus connects the work to the outside environment. Through these interventions, Turrell rekindles the museum's identity as a 'temple of spirit' (to quote the museum's first director, Hilla Rebay), encouraging a state of meditative contemplation. This full-color catalogue accompanies the exhibition at the Guggenheim, detailing the production of the rotunda installation and situating it in the context of Turrell's career. In addition to beautifully reproduced images featuring the artist's early works, his magnum opus 'Roden Crater Project' (1979- ), and documentation of 'Aten Reign,' this volume includes essays by the show's curators, Stephen and Nan Swid Curator of Twentieth-Century Art, Carmen Gimenez, and Associate Curator Nat Trotman, and Arthur Zajonc, Emeritus Professor of Physics at Amherst College.As an undergraduate, James Turrell (born 1943) studied psychology and mathematics, transitioning to art at MFA level. A practicing Quaker, one of his earliest memories is of his grandmother inviting him to 'go inside and greet the light' at Quaker meetings. The recipient of several prestigious awards such as Guggenheim and MacArthur Fellowships, Turrell lives in Arizona. Codice libro della libreria 146322
