James Turrell: A Retrospective
May 26, 2013–June 6, 2014
5905 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90036

I've already written about the retrospective's Perpetual Cell, but that's only a small part of this tremendous and odd show. Some features require you to remove your shoes.

"James Turrell: A Retrospective explores nearly fifty years in the career of James Turrell (b. 1943, Los Angeles), a key artist in the Southern California Light and Space movement of the 1960s and 70s. The exhibition includes early geometric light projections, prints and drawings, installations exploring sensory deprivation and seemingly unmodulated fields of colored light, and recent two-dimensional work with holograms. One section is devoted to the Turrell masterwork in process, Roden Crater, a site-specific intervention into the landscape just outside Flagstaff, Arizona, which will be presented through models, plans, photographs, and films."
