James Turrell Exhibitions on View Coast to Coast Summer 2013
In May and June 2013, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH), and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York concurrently present three separate exhibitions highlighting the achievements of seminal American artist James Turrell (b. 1943), best known for his large-scale light installations. Independently curated by each presenting institution, the three simultaneous and complementary exhibitions together offer a full sense of Turrell’s oeuvre, and explore different facets of his five-decade career. Audiences at all three exhibitions will be able to see and experience an unprecedented range of his work—from a retrospective in Los Angeles, to work from the extensive permanent collection and commissions in Houston, to a monumental site-specific installation in New York.
