Asia Society Hong Kong Center is honored to present Yukaloo (2011) by James Turrell, marking the artist’s first installation at an institution in Hong Kong. James Turrell (b. 1943, Los Angeles) is a leading American artist who uses light as a medium for his immersive installations. Associated with the Light and Space movement of the 1960s, Turrell has dedicated his practice to what he has deemed perceptual art, investigating the materiality of light and the sensorial experience of space, color, and perception.

Yukaloo is an aperture within which LEDs are engineered to change colors gradually over the course of several hours. Colored light emitted from the work fills the space, creating an immersive atmosphere similar to the awe-inspiring fashion in which the sky changes from late afternoon to night. Best known for his installations of colored light that appear boundless and infinite, Turrell draws us closer to the presence of light and how it transforms our perception of space.

This presentation of Yukaloo at Asia Society Hong Kong Center is made possible through the support of JK and Ingrid Lee Foundation. Additional support is provided by Wellington and Virginia Yee and Tucker Highfield and Inna Rodchenko-Highfield. Special thanks to Pace Gallery and Kayne Griffin Corcoran.



承蒙JK及Ingrid Lee Foundation、Wellington and Virginia Yee以及Tucker Highfield and Inna Rodchenko-Highfield的支持,亞洲協會香港中心得以呈獻《Yukaloo》。並特別鳴謝佩斯畫廊和Kayne Griffin Corcoran畫廊。
