Weekend Update

Down the block towards Madison Avenue is the Pace Gallery, whose various divisions (tribal art, prints, photography) occupy four floors in the building. On two is the show of new Light and Space works by Robert Irwin, and they could not be lovelier, even if they are made from six-foot-tall fluorescent lights. Irwin covers his tubes with mylar gels, most of them configured like racing stripes (an amusing touch), subtly altering the hues in ways that are not easy to see. Some of Irwin’s tubes, more than you might expect, are turned off, and only reflect the light of their neighbors.
