The works of James Turrell will feature atop the Louis Vuitton store in Las Vegas, bringing a brilliant fusion of fine art and fashion to the legendary sin city. Turrell is an artist known for his penchant for painting with light, and though his exhibit is tucked away in the next-to-secret top floor of Louis Vuitton, travelers to Las Vegas now have a chance to see his spectacular works.
Brace yourself for the summer of light: Turrell-apalooza is officially upon us! With major museum exhibitions of James Turrellís work now on view at LACMA in Los Angeles, The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, and the Guggenheim in New York, donít forget that a fourth American city, forever famous for its glow, has embraced the prolific septuagenarian with open arms: Las Vegas.
For decades Turrell has created meticulous environments where the interplay of light and space renders basic perception a transcendental experience. Monumentalized as a master of quietude and subtlety, his work is surprisingly at home in Sin City.
