Robert Irwin's work is part of a major exhibition on the Light and Space mouvement at Copenhagen Contemporary
“My ambition is, in a sense, to make you see a little bit more tomorrow than you saw today”, said Robert Irwin.
His over 16-metre-wide and 8-metre-tall work illuminated by 115 fluorescent tubes is included in the large survey on the Light and Space mouvement at Copenhagen Contemporary, the American art mouvement that Robert Irwin is one of the founders.
The exhibition also presents historical artworks by James Turrell, Doug Wheeler, Helen Pashgian, Larry Bell, Bruce Nauman, Mary Corse, and many others – alongside works by contemporary European artists inspired by the pioneering art movement, among them Anish Kapoor, Olafur Eliasson, and Jeppe Hein.
The singular exhibition, CC’s biggest to date, sprawls across all five exhibition halls and ends in CC studio’s interactive laboratory where you can experiment with light, colour, and space and build with transparent LEGO and light.
