Inside James Turrell’s Roden Crater

It is Turrell’s most ambitious project, but also his most personal. He has spent 45 years designing a series of tunnels and chambers inside to capture celestial light. Yet Turrell has rarely allowed anyone to visit the work in progress. Known as Roden Crater, it stands 580 feet tall and nearly two miles wide. One of the tunnels that Turrell has completed is 854 feet long. – Smithsonian

Inside James Turrell’s Masterwork-In-Progress In Arizona’s Painted Desert

For 45 years, the light sculptor has been designing and building a complex inside Roden Crater, a volcanic cinder cone about 50 miles northeast of Flagstaff. In his 70s (he turns 78 this year), he had begun to think there was no hope of living to complete his ambitious plans. Then $10 million seed money arrived from (of all people) Kanye West. more donations followed, and Arizona State University agreed to join in as partner and operator — and now construction is in high gear. Here’s a rare loo...

Installation Art As Big Business Proposition (Think Of Kusama Infinity Rooms, But For Profit)

“Superblue, as [the venture] is called, will open a series of experiential art centers (EACs for short) that won’t sell precious objects, as conventional galleries do. They’ll present art experiences: deep dives into all-encompassing works by such artists as JR, the French photographer who focuses on issues like migration, displacement and imprisonment; and James Turrell, the celebrated Light and Space artist.” What are they selling? Tickets, of course. – The New York Times

“Donald Judd and James Turrell’s ‘Lapsed Quaker Ware’ coupled with a sense of Japanese minimalism.” Amy Kwok is explaining the sources of inspiration for her kitchen design—and it’s immediately apparent that she’s not the average home remodeler. In fact, Amy was once a Fulbright Fellow, researching architecture and ceramics under Chinese architect Wang Shu (2012’s Pritzker Prize winner). After working for several distinguished architecture firms—and becoming a mom to twins—she decided to strike ...

Solving Online Events

Benedict Evans: I suspect part of the answer to this is actually that a lot of physical events will come back in some form as we emerge from lockdown. But this also makes me think that there will be new tools with much more radically new approaches, and some new behaviours and habits. Hence, it's often struck me that networking events are pretty inefficient and random. If you're going to spend an hour or two in a room with 50 or 500 people, then you could take that as a purely social occasion an...

Close your eyes and imagine seeing the art world's treasures as if for the first time | Laura Cumming

The museums of Europe have begun reopening their doors to art lovers desperate to see old favourites and new worksI am cursing my bad luck not to be stuck in lockdown in the Prado.

Visual arts: Frieze Los Angeles forges its identity

Frieze Los Angeles arrives here at a time when the importance of international art fairs is being hotly debated. Over the last decade, the press, art critics and activists have been bemoaning the ubiquity and indifference of art fairs to the global climate crisis, serving as a bloated symbol of the elitist art world whose denizens recklessly fly around the globe. Frieze Los Angeles seeks to rise above the backlash by showcasing an eclectic lineup of artists and galleries — both established and u...

James Turrell, the Video Game

Designer Jacopo Colò has made a video game that allows you to spend an hour inside a 2013 James Turrell installation, The Color Inside. Turrell’s work is all about the fundamental materials: space, time and light, and is usually focused on permanent installations. His most famous works are the Skyspaces. A Skyspace is (most of the times) a room with a hole in the ceiling that allows to see the sky above, with nothing in between. At specific times during the day — at sunrise and sunset — a hidde...
