It’s tough to think of a better museum to showcase the light and space experiments of James Turrell than the spiraling rotunda of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum. Best known for his ongoing transformation of the Roden Crater in Arizona into a massive naked-eye observatory, Turrell will present Aten Reign, a new work that will play with light, color, space, and the museum’s sweeping curves to create one of his breathtaking Skyspaces. Other works from the artist’s career will also be included in this exhibition, Turrell’s first in a New York museum since 1980 and a part of a retrospective happening in museums across the country.
Mondays-Sundays, 10 a.m. Starts: June 21. Continues through Sept. 25, 2013
