“We eat light, drink it through our skins. With a little more exposure to light, you feel part of things physically. I like the power of light and space physically because then you can order it materially. Seeing is a very sensuous act - there’s a sweet deliciousness to feeling yourself see something.” - James Turrell (“James Turrell: A Retrospective”, LACMA, 2014)
Vancouver is set to pulse with the rhythm of radiant luminance as CICA Vancouver (Vancouver Centre of International Contemporary Art) unveils the exhibition James Turrell - Light, Space and The Art of Perception. A titan in contemporary art, American artist James Turrell's (b. 1943) works redefine the interaction of light and human perception, and have been nothing short of revolutionary. This eagerly anticipated immersive exhibition promises to be a visual delight, bringing together a comprehensive collection of his works that have enthralled audiences worldwide. From December 1st, 2023, through February 18th, 2024, the city will witness, for the first time, the celestial choreography of this master of illumination.
