I am super excited for James Turrell's upcoming exhibition at the Guggenheim (opens June 21st). It will be the artist's first exhibit in a New York museum since 1980! In anticipation for his show, along with fellow Light and Space artist, Robert Irwin's, upcoming installation at the Whitney titled, Scrim veil — Black Rectangle — Natural light, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (1977), Art Info posted History of Light: The Pioneers, From Robert Irwin to Anthony McCall, a brief and informative overview of the key players of the 1960s, Californian art movement, Light and Space, and its related practices and artists including Dan Flavin, Mary Corse, and Anthony McCall.

Below are a few pics I took at the February 2013 Dan Flavin exhibit at David Zwirner which inaugurated the gallery's beautiful, new West 20th Street location.
