James Turrell : a retrospective by Michael Govan( Book )
7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Published in conjunction with a major retrospective, this comprehensive volume illuminates the origins and motivations of James Turrell's incredibly diverse and exciting body of work--from his Mendota studio days to his monumental work-in-progress Roden Crater. Whether he's projecting shapes on a flat wall or into the corner of a gallery space, James Turrell is perpetually asking us to "go inside and greet the light"--Evoking his Quaker upbringing. In fact, all of Turrell's work has been influenced by his life experiences with aviation, science, and psychology, and as a key player in Los Angeles's exploding art scene of the 1960s. Enhanced by thoughtful essays and an illuminating interview with the artist, this monograph explores every aspect of Turrell's career to date--from his early geometric light projections, prints, and drawings, through his installations exploring sensory deprivation and seemingly unmodulated fields of colored light, to recent two-dimensional experiments with holograms. It also features an in-depth look at Roden Crater, a site-specific intervention into the landscape near Flagstaff, Arizona, which will be presented through models, plans, photographs, and drawings. Fans of this highly influential artist will find much to savor in this wide-ranging and beautiful book, featuring specially commissioned new photography by Florian Holzherr."--Publisher's website

James Turrell : Geometrie des Lichts by James Turrell( Book )
5 editions published in 2009 in German and English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
James Turrell (*1943 inLos Angeles) is undoubtedly the most influential contemporary light artist. His entire oeuvre is dedicated to the exploration of the many facets of natural and artificial light. In his work, light and space become experiential processes, reflecting the basic conditions of aesthetic perception. At the center of this book is a group of works, Sky Spaces, which have become an art form in their own right, developed by Turrell over the course of his career. Academic, philosophical, and art-historical essays explain the development and significance of these perceptual spaces, whose concept is closely bound to the creation of the Roden Crater Project in the Arizona desert, where the artist began erecting an observatory in 1974. Examples of his work are used to explain the meaning of these light spaces to contemporary art. Also included is the latest installation, Skyspace/Camera Obscura Space, which Turrell conceived for the Zentrum für Internationale Lichtkunst in Unna

James Turrell : the Wolfsburg Project by James Turrell( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in German and English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Turrell is currently realizing his largest installation to date in the eighteen-by-thirty-meter hall at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg. This Ganzfeld Piece resembles the crater, everted and rotated ninety degrees. Thus the Wolfsburg installation provides a foretaste of Turrell's still incomplete, epic work in Arizona. This richly illustrated publication documents, among other things, the genesis of this new work of art
Robert Irwin, James Turrell : Villa Panza by Michael Govan( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The work of two central figures associated with West Coast contemporary art, Robert Irwin and James Turrell, is the subject of this breathtaking book that explores collaboration, artistic evolution, and themes of light, space, and perception. Robert Irwin and James Turrell, both originally from Los Angeles, are among the most recognized artists to have emerged in the 1960s. Irwin has worked in a variety of media, while Turrell's work is characterized by his engagement with pure light. One of the first champions of Irwin and Turrell's work was Giuseppe Panza, who commissioned installations for his 19th-century mansion in Northern Italy, now an art museum, part of FAI-Fondo Ambiente Italiano. Those installations are the focus of this book, the first to pair these two important artists. Opening with essays that examine the artists' seminal careers and trace their relationship to Panza, this volume examines both the original 1973 installations in the villa and recent works made specifically for the building's architecture. Irwin's new installation moves from inside to outside through a row of vertical openings and a series of semi-transparent planes, and Turrell's large Ganzfeld immerses viewers in radiant colored light. Through numerous illustrations and informative text, the book shows how both artists have extended and refined their earlier work using the latest technology"--
