VIDEO: James Turrell Makes the Guggenheim Glow

The Guggenheim’s iconic rotunda gets a splash of color with James Turrell’s “Aten Reign.” A result of six years of planning, the installation uses a series of interlocking cones lined with LED fixtures to illuminate the skyspace into an ethereal mass of vibrant color. Blouin ARTINFO caught a glimpse of Turrell during the press preview, where the light artist expressed the power of shaping light in the monumental Frank Lloyd Wright space.
