Robert Irwin, James Turrell : Villa Panza by Michael Govan( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The work of two central figures associated with West Coast contemporary art, Robert Irwin and James Turrell, is the subject of this breathtaking book that explores collaboration, artistic evolution, and themes of light, space, and perception. Robert Irwin and James Turrell, both originally from Los Angeles, are among the most recognized artists to have emerged in the 1960s. Irwin has worked in a variety of media, while Turrell's work is characterized by his engagement with pure light. One of the first champions of Irwin and Turrell's work was Giuseppe Panza, who commissioned installations for his 19th-century mansion in Northern Italy, now an art museum, part of FAI-Fondo Ambiente Italiano. Those installations are the focus of this book, the first to pair these two important artists. Opening with essays that examine the artists' seminal careers and trace their relationship to Panza, this volume examines both the original 1973 installations in the villa and recent works made specifically for the building's architecture. Irwin's new installation moves from inside to outside through a row of vertical openings and a series of semi-transparent planes, and Turrell's large Ganzfeld immerses viewers in radiant colored light. Through numerous illustrations and informative text, the book shows how both artists have extended and refined their earlier work using the latest technology"--

Seeing is forgetting the name of the thing one sees : over thirty years of conversations with Robert Irwin by Lawrence Weschler( Book )
4 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Seeing Is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees chronicles three decades of extraordinary conversation between Weschler and Light and Space master Irwin, taking us into the heart of what it can mean to be an artist." "The original dialogues extend from the surf and cars of Irwin's L.A. youth through his passion for abstract expressionism, past his decision to abandon studio work altogether, up to and including the 1977 Whitney Museum of American Art retrospective. This lavishly expanded new edition surveys many of Irwin's subsequent site-conditioned projects - in particular the spectacularly realized Central Garden at the Getty Museum (the subject of an epic battle with the site's principal architect, Richard Meier) and the path-breaking design that transformed an abandoned Hudson Valley factory into Dia's stellar new Beacon campus - enhancing what many had already considered the best-ever book on an artist."--BOOK JACKET
