Walking into a work by James Turrell forces you to scrutinize the environment around you since there is so little to look at except light and color, then you realize how much there is to actually examine. Framing light, Turrell’s work can feel effortless but their impact on our perceptions can be profound.
This Art21 video of Margaret Kilgallen is particularly special because it features some previously unheard interview footage with the late painter.
Art21 is celebrating. The arts nonprofit has hit an amazing milestone of 100 artists who have appeared to date on the first six seasons of their Peabody Award-winning documentary series Art in the Twenty-First Century.
