    Let There Be Light: The Year of James Turrell

    James Turrell, the renowned artist and manipulator of light, has launched his first solo exhibition in a New York museum since 1980, taking over the rotunda of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. The iconic space by Frank Lloyd Wright is transformed into Aten Reign, a Skyspace of colored natural and artificial light. The mixture of daylight and LEDs not only makes visitors to look up, the shifting display mesmerizes them.

    In addition to the atrium installation, a selection of Turrell’s early work is on display including Afrum I (White), a glowing cube floating in the corner of a room, and Ronin, a narrow strip of light sequestered in a dark room. The Guggenheim exhibition is just one part of what very well may be the Year of Turrell. Both the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston are simultaneously presenting the artist’s work, making for a bi-coastal retrospective in three parts. A public dramatic site-specific light installation at The Shops at Crystals in Las Vegas will also debut this month.

    The Guggenheim will show “James Turrell” from June 21 to September 25.
