“We eat light, drink it in through our skins. With a little more exposure to light, you feel part of things physically. I like the power of light and space physically because then you can order it materially. Seeing yourself seeing is a very sensuous act—there’s a sweet deliciousness to feeling yourself see something.” James Turrell
James Turrell, a retrospective
13 December 2014 – 8 June 2015
This exhibition follows three highly successful shows throughout 2013—at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Guggenheim in New York. It brings together works from LACMA’s tour, with spectacular installations purpose-built for Canberra, drawings, prints and photographs. This is contemporary art like you’ve never seen before and promises an experience not to be missed.
