Gard Blue
James Turrell’s pivotal 1968 work Gard Blue represents a transformative period in his career, marking the crucial juncture when Turrell shifted the viewer’s attention to perception and the phenomenon of light rather than an object[…] Appearing in a large, box-like room constructed within the Central Court, Gard Blue is a projection of light. The clarity of Gard Blue’s presence is held by a single, arresting color. In the Spencer’s exhibition, holograms by Turrell surround Gard Blue, representing this important American artist’s ideas, innovative methods, and unwavering vision.
