MoMA PS1 Reopens James Turrell's Installation

“Meeting” in 2016. The James Turrell installation, which closed in January, has just reopened.
After about six months of indefinite closure, MoMA PS1 has reopened an installation by the artist James Turrell, known for engaging viewers’ perceptions with real and artificial light. The work, “Meeting,” was closed in January when construction from a pair of luxury apartment buildings near the museum, an outpost of MoMA in Long Island City, Queens, became visible through a rectangular opening in the ceiling. A minimal environment, it alludes to Quaker meeting houses and frames the waning light and weather. It was intended to give an unobstructed view of the sky. [More]
