The exhibition explores the artist’s work over almost 50 years, bringing together Projection pieces, built spaces, holograms, drawings, prints and photographs. Never before seen in Australia and showing only in Canberra, James Turrell is considered one of the greatest living artists of our time. His extraordinary light works have been specifically designed for the National Gallery of Australia and will change the way you see. A truly unique experience not to missed.
