Now at PaceWildenstein’s West 25th Street location is the gallery’s fourth solo exhibition of James Turrell, ‘Large Holograms.’ Working within the language he developed in his seminal projection pieces of the 1960s, Turrell’s fifteen large-scale hologram works deal with the physicality of light and the changes of its presence via the changes in perspective. Using traditional dichromate holographic material, Turrell, instead of using light to create the illusion of a three-dimensional object, makes an object out of light itself.

A major retrospective of Turrell’s work will take place in 2012 at the Guggenheim Museum, followed by the Los Angeles County Museum Art and then an international tour. During the retrospective, Turrell’s work on the Roden Crater – an extinct volcano that the artist has been transforming since the 1970s – will be open to the public. Earlier this spring, the James Turrell Museum opened in Colome, Argentina, on the estate of Swiss collector Donald Hess.
