Central Garden at the Getty Center I Courtesy Robert Irwin
Robert Irwin was an original member of the “Light and Space” movement that began back in 1960s California, and the 87-year-old artist is still exploring optics and interpreting space at a prolific pace. Over the summer he opened a new installation using scrims and natural light at Dia:Beacon. Next year, a new installation will be a highlight of “Robert Irwin: All the Rules Will Change,” a retrospective of his work that runs April 7 through September 5, 2016, at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington DC.
In between, Irwin makes a stop at UNLV to talk about his Central Garden at the Getty Center. That will be this Thursday, December 10, at 6 p.m. (The talk was scheduled for earlier in the Arts Lecture Series but delayed).
More on Irwin from the Wall Street Journal. April 10, 2015.
Robert Irwin's 2015 UNLV Artist Lecture Series talk is expected to be a popular lecture, say lecture organizers. 6 p.m. start time is an hour earlier than previous lectures and it is recommended to come early. Seating will be limited.
