James Turrell: A Retrospective
- Author Michael Govan and Christine Y. Kim
James Turrell: A Retrospective is a copublished book with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art for the major touring retrospective and concurrent exhibitions at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York and The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. This comprehensive volume illuminates the origins and motivations of James Turrell’s incredibly diverse and exciting body of work, from his Mendota studio days to his monumental work-in-progress Roden Crater. Whether he’s projecting shapes on a flat wall or into the corner of a gallery space, James Turrell is perpetually asking us to “go inside and greet the light” evoking his Quaker upbringing.
