Entitled Meeting, James Turrell’s site-specific installation has been a part of the MOMA PS1 since 1986. As part of Turrell’s series on skyspaces, all exposing the sky through rectangular or rounded holes cut into the ceiling of the enclosed space. Turrell has described the space: “There’s
this four-square seating that’s inside, seating toward each other,
having a space that created some silence, allowing something to develop
slowly over time, particularly at sunset. Also, this Meeting has to do with the meeting of space that you’re in with the meeting of the space of the sky.” Photo Tamara Weber
