James Turrell: A Retrospective

LACMA (Miracle Mile)
10am-7pm
Opening day of James Turrell: A Retrospective, an exhibition exploring nearly fifty years in the career of James Turrell, a key artist in the Southern California Light and Space movement of the 1960s and '70s. The exhibition includes early geometric light projections, prints and drawings, installations exploring sensory deprivation and seemingly unmodulated fields of colored light, and recent two-dimensional work with holograms. One section is devoted to the Turrell masterwork in process, Roden Crater, a site-specific piece located just outside of Flagstaff, Arizona. The exhibition includes a separately-ticketed experience, Light Reignfall, from the artist's Perceptual Cell series, with a limited number of tickets available. Read an essay on James Turrell by Michael Govan here. On view through April 6, 2014. Also check the inaugural exhibition at Kayne Griffin Corcoran's new space designed by Standard with key elements by Turrell, James Turrell: Sooner Than Later, Roden Crater, this Saturday from 6-8pm.
