»James Turrell: A Retrospective« explores nearly fifty years in the career of James Turrell (b. 1943, Los Angeles), a key artist in the Southern California Light and Space movement of the 1960s and 70s. The exhibition includes early geometric light projections, prints and drawings, installations exploring sensory deprivation and seemingly unmodulated fields of colored light, and recent two-dimensional work with holograms. One section is devoted to the Turrell masterwork in process, Roden Crater, a site-specific intervention into the landscape just outside Flagstaff, Arizona, presented through models, plans, photographs, and films. The exhibition includes a separately-ticketed experience, Light Reignfall, from the artist’s Perceptual Cell series, with a limited number of tickets available (special conditions apply).
James Turrell: A Retrospective is organized by LACMA, in conjunction with the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, New York.
