You’ve never seen New York’s Guggenheim Museum like this — and by “this” we mean bathed in a shifting spectrum of light, from violets and blues to greens, oranges and pinks. It’s James Turrell’s breathtaking exhibit at — takeover of? — Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic building, in which he toys with our perception of light and space. The immersive Aten Reign (above) transforms the central rotunda while Turrell’s other works on display, equally serene and transporting, like 1967′s Afrum I (White)’s floating cube, clue the viewer in on the artist’s early career. Not in the city? The Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston are also hosting their own Turrell retrospectives.
