James Turrell’s first exhibition in a New York museum since 1980 focuses on the artist’s groundbreaking explorations of perception, light, color, and space, with a special focus on the role of site specificity in his practice. In conjunction of the exhibition, the Guggenheim screens movies related such as Carine Asscher's Passageways.
