The Light Fantastic

Amh-Minh Le | April 27, 2016 | Story Galleries and Performance National

This spring, New York-based Pace Gallery—which recently inaugurated its Art + Technology program in Menlo Park—is furthering its presence on the Peninsula. A downtown Palo Alto venue is set to open in late April with a solo show by James Turrell, the influential artist known for expansive installations that explore the relationship between light, space and time. Over the past half-century, he has had more than 160 solo exhibitions worldwide. The upcoming one with Pace, entitled James Turrell: Recent Works, is scheduled to run from April 27 to Aug. 30. The pieces on display will include holograms as well as draw from his Wide Glass series. With the latter, the shades and intensity of the colors in front of the viewer subtly morph. While the entire sequence can take up to two hours, you don’t need to watch from start to finish to experience the mesmerizing effects of Turrell’s art.

Free, 229 Hamilton Ave., Palo Alto, Pace Gallery
