Meeting, 1986

This is one of Turrell's most famous Skyspaces, his works of enclosed spaces with holes cut directly into the ceiling so that viewers may appreciate the color of the sky. Meeting is at New York's Museum of Modern Art annex, PS1, and has been since 1986. It uses carefully controlled orange lights inside to increase the intensity of color outside the aperture. "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," Turrell said of Meeting.
