Museo James Turrell

We all know and love the James Turrell Skypace at the Henry. Perhaps you know about his Roden Crater Project in Arizona. But did you know that there is an entire museum of his work in Argentina? The James Turrell Museum, which opened in 2009, is part of the Hess Art Collection, curated by Donald Hess a vinter and founder of Hess Collection Wineries. The Museo James Turrell is located within the Hess Collection’s Colomé Winery and Estate in Argentina. Here is the description from their website:

The museum is exclusively dedicated to the work of James Turrell, one of the world’s most renowned contemporary artists, who is mainly concerned with light and space. The different works of art in the museum span five decades in the artist’s career like a time tunnel. They are exhibited in nine especially-fitted rooms of light in a total area of 1,700 square metres.
