The exhibition runs from June 27 - September 1st at the Whitney Museum. a large-scale installation that uniquely engages the Whitney’s Breuer building and the natural light coming from the large window in the fourth floor gallery space. Part of the Whitney’s collection, the work was made specifically for the Museum’s fourth floor. It has not been exhibited since its 1977 debut, a pivotal moment that would set the course for Irwin’s subsequent artistic practice. It is interesting to note that this exhibition is simultaneously occurring during James Turrell's exhibition at the Guggenheim in NY and the long term relationship and collaborations that both Turrell and Irwin have done together - both dealing with the
concept of light and perception but following their explorations in different ways.
