Phenomenal: California Light, Space, Surface
MCASD (San Diego)
This Pacific Standard Time exhibition focuses on perceptual investigations undertaken by artists during the 1960s and '70s in Los Angeles, fomenting some of the most vanguard practices engaging young artists today. Larry Bell, Mary Corse, Robert Irwin, Bruce Nauman, James Turrell, and Doug Wheeler are among a cadre of artists whose work focused on visual perception and facilitated an awareness of the viewer's physical body moving through space. The opening costs $20 for non-members, and the exhibition continues through January 25, 2012.
