James Turrell: a retrospective, explores the artist’s work over almost 50 years, bringing together projection pieces, built spaces, holograms, drawings, prints and photographs.
It celebrates Skyspaces, Tyrells viewing chambers that affect our perception of the sky, and surveys Turrell’s life work, including Roden Crater, a naked eye observatory in an extinct volcano on the edge of the Painted Desert in Arizona. The exhibition follows three highly successful shows throughout 2013—at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston and the Guggenheim in New York—with works from LACMA’s tour and spectacular installations purpose-built for Canberra.
There are a range of public programs accompanying James Turrell: a retrospective, including talks, workshops for children and adults, performances and screenings.
Drop in at the Light Lab to explore Turrell Skyspaces from around the world, investigate the nature of perception and colour with a range of apps, create drawings and discover light and colour in our world.
