The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (MCASD) will present at its downtown location, three large-scale installations by Robert Irwin, Ernesto Neto and Judith Barry, Nov. 19-Feb. 21. All three are part of the Museum’s permanent collection, which includes more than 4,600 works from 1950 to the present. Each room-size installation has a character all its own. Irwin’s “Light and Space” is an elegant arrangement of fluorescent light-tubes that creates a hypnotic, space-transforming experience for viewers. This is a fairly recent work by the now 87-year-old Irwin, who has created transformative indoor and outdoor installations for many venues, including, locally, MCASD-La Jolla and the Stuart Collection at UCSD. Irwin is one of seven long-lived and still active artists TIMEmagazine profiled in 2013 as “Legends at Work,” and this piece demonstrates his continuing exploration of the aesthetics of the 1960s Light and Space Movement he helped to define.
