James Turrell exhibit at the Guggenheim

GMS provided structural engineering or the James Turrell exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum. This is James Turrell's first exhibition in a New York museum since 1980. It mainly focuses on the artist's groundbreaking explorations of perception, light, color, and space, with a special concentration on the role of site-specificity in his practice. The art reorients visitors' experiences of the rotunda from above to below; using natural and LED lighting to give viewers an entirely new experience of the building. Other works from throughout the artist's career will be displayed in the museum's Annex Level galleries, offering a complement and counterpoint to the new work in the rotunda.
