“Light is not so much something that reveals, as it is itself the revelation.” —James Turrell

The artist, who uses light as his primary subject and material, was born today, May 6, in Los Angeles.

Turrell’s work will be on exhibit in the show “L’emozione dei COLORI nell’arte”. The exhibition will be presented in the Manica Lunga of the Castello di Rivoli Museo d'Arte Contemporanea and at the GAM galleria civica d'arte moderna di Torino. The public display includes an extraordinary collection of over 400 works by 125 artists and other practitioners from around the world, dating from the late 17th century to today. The show will run from March 14, 2017 to July 23.
