Museo Jumex presents Passages of Light, a show which spans the work of the internationally acclaimed artist James Turrell (USA, b. 1943). Renowned for his immersive light installations and a scientific understanding of light’s affects, Turrell creates wordless meditations on time and space.
Each installation is a carefully-controlled environment, in which light is formed and experienced, and saturated fields of color take on a physical presence.
‘my work is more about your seeing than it is about my seeing, although it is a product of my seeing,’ says Turrell. ‘I’m also interested in the sense of presence of space; that is space where you feel a presence, almost an entity—that physical feeling and power that space can give.’
Passages of Light presents new works from Turrell’s most important series, spanning two floors of Museo Jumex’s galleries.
