Any excuse to say Robert Irwin and Dennis Hopper in the same sentence… Robert Irwin, a pioneering artist of the “Light and Space” movement, returns with an exhibition of new fluorescent light tube sculptures. Wrapping fluorescent tubes in as many as ten colored gels to attain a range of hues, Irwin mounts the lights in vertical groupings on the wall. Way Out West is an experiment with the perceptual qualities of light, playing with rhythm, texture, densities, temperature, and chromatic relationships. The show opens tomorrow, Thursday November 11th and is up through January 29th, 2011 at The Pace Gallery at 32 East 57th Street NYC.
