Aten Reign, a major new project at the Guggenheim rotunda, an enormous volume filled with shifting artificial and natural light.



“One of the most dramatic transformations of the museum ever conceived, the installation reimagines Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic architecture—its openness to nature, graceful curves, and magnificent sense of space—as one of Turrell’s Skyspaces, referencing in particular his magnum opus the Roden Crater Project (1979– ).”

The exhibition will take place from June 21–September 25, 2013.
