This full-color catalogue accompanies the exhibition at the Guggenheim, detailing the production of the rotunda installation and situating it in the context of James Turrell’s career. In addition to beautifully reproduced images featuring the artist’s early works, his magnum opus Roden Crater Project (1979– ), and documentation of Aten Reign (2013), this volume includes essays by the show’s curators, Stephen and Nan Swid Curator of Twentieth-Century Art Carmen Giménez and Associate Curator Nat Trotman, and Arthur Zajonc, emeritus professor of physics at Amherst College. James Turrell investigates the significance of the new work for the Guggenheim in terms of Turrell’s ongoing relationships with architecture, the landscape, and perceptual experience.
