James Turrell, Second Meeting Art21 Exclusive, 2013

Dir. David Howe, DVD, 4 min., 22 sec.

Filmed in early 2013, this short piece shows James Turrell revisiting his installation Second Meeting (1989) at the home of private collectors in Los Angeles, California. One of his first Skyspaces, Second Meeting was originally installed at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, in 1986. In the film, Turrell describes what initially attracted him to working with light and how Skyspaces encourage a closer examination of our visual perceptions. Second Meeting was preceded by a similar work titled Meeting, which has been on public view at MoMA PS1 in New York since 1986.

This event is part of Art21’s Access 100 Artists, a celebration of contemporary art, and Art in the Twenty First Century, season one through six, sponsored by Art21. Visit art21.org for more information.
