James Turrell: A retrospective National Gallery of Australia, Canberra from 13 December 2014 James Turrell: A retrospective explores the artist’s work over almost 50 years, bringing together projection pieces, built spaces, holograms, drawings, prints and photographs. It surveys his life work, Roden Crater, a naked eye observatory in an extinct volcano on the edge of the Painted Desert, Arizona. The exhibition also celebrates the National Gallery’s Skyspace, Within without 2010, a viewing chamber that affects our perception of the sky. Since the 1960s Turrell has made art from light. His interior works and external installations use a range of fluorescent, tungsten, fibre-optic, LED and natural light. This exhibition follows three highly successful shows throughout 2013—at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, and the Guggenheim in New York. It brings together works from LACMA's tour, with spectacular installations purpose-built for Canberra.
