CALIFORNIA---After a new Drake music video went viral last week picturing the rapper dancing amongst lightscapes that some see as an homage to Turrell—and just before the artist is honored at LACMA’s Art and Film Gala—Turrell debuts new work at a gallery that has already been shaped by his influence. KGC, which already has a permanent skyspace and a lighting installation designed by the artist, will show Turrell’s new “Elliptical Glass” works: LED light displays covered with glass that are embedded into the gallery walls—once again testament to the artist’s keen ability to harness light.
