One of artist James Turrell’s celebrated Skyspaces, »Meeting« is a site-specific installation that invites viewers to gaze upwards toward an unobstructed view of the sky.

»Meeting« was the second Skyspace that James Turrell constructed and the first in the United States – becoming a prototype for the many subsequent such works he would construct over the following decades. Originally commissioned in 1976 by PS1 founder Alanna Heiss for the museum’s inaugural exhibition, the work was not realized until 1980, and Turrell continued to make modifications until it opened to the public in 1986. In 2016, after a three year renovation that replaced the original seating and added a new multi-colored lighting program synchronized with the sunrise and sunset, »Meeting« entered the collection of The Museum of Modern Art.

James Turrell’s »Meeting« is located on the northern side of MoMA PS1’s third floor. Access is included with gallery admission during regular museum hours. Please note that seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. Visitors are encouraged to monitor the weather and dress accordingly. »Meeting« will be closed in the case of rain, snow, or other inclement weather.
