Featured in the current issue #13 of SFAQ is an interview with Christine Y. Kim, the Associate Curator Contemporary Art at the LACMA in Los Angeles discussing works by James Turrell. You can download the full PDF of issue #13 in the “CURRENT ISSUE” box on our main page. One exhibition we recommend you to visit is the current James Turrell Retrospective at LACMA to see Light and Space movement works in person. These works are heavy rooted in human interaction, and can only be genuinely experienced in the flesh.
The “James Turrell: A Retrospective”, which explores nearly fifty years in the career of James Turrell (b. 1943, Los Angeles), 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 intervention into the landscape just outside Flagstaff, Arizona, presented through models, plans, photographs, and films.
The “James Turrell: A Retrospective” will be on view until April 6th, 2013.
