The Museum Frieder Burda in Baden-Baden presents an exhibition of works by James Turrell until 28th October 2018.

Turrell’s inspiration draws from astronomy, physics, architecture and theology. The artist once remarked, “I am really interested in the qualities of one space sensing another. It is like looking at someone looking. Objectivity is gained by being

The choice of Palo Alto is "not about that whole internationalist plan of opening your gallery in every major city, which we certaintly have been a part of," but about "trying to do something we don't already do and reach a new community that is not being served right now," said Marc Glimcher, president of Pace worldwide.

In his first week of teaching at the Claremont graduate school in 1971, James Turrell created a rather loud false alarm. He was planting road flares and aluminum reflectors in alcoves behind the columns of Bridges Auditorium (above) in a performance art piece in which the building appeared to have caught on fire. “What happened is it was so effective that the fire department was called out,” he said, telling the story by phone Monday. "All of a sudden I heard the sirens approaching." He said he

Pointedly titled “Present Tense,” the show presents four modestly scaled light installation works from across the span of Turrell’s 45-year career, sketching a loose trajectory of the artist’s evolution — an arc that would seem to extend from mastery to transc

A monumental new art installation celebrating light and nature has been unveiled at the National Gallery in Canberra. Made of marble, steel, bronze, rock and water, the outdoor structure is partly submerged beneath the ground, landscaped with green grasses on top and ringed by a moat-like lake of turquoise water. Viewers walk inside the mound and into a central viewing chamber, where they can gaze up through a portal at the sky. The gallery's director, Ron Radford, says it is about "sky worship"
