James Turrell has shut down his most-popular Skyspace installation at MoMA PS1 in New York City. A scaffolding from a nearby construction site was apparently obstructing the view of a work in the permanent installation. Entitled Meeting, the closed artwork features an enclosed space with LED lighting that changes depending on the sun’s location in the sky. The sun’s rays pierce through a rectangular opening in the ceiling of the installation.

“James Turrell’s Meeting at MoMA PS1 will remain closed until construction scaffolding is no longer visible from the work,” a spokeswoman for MoMA PS1 told artnet News. “The completed building will not be visible from the installation. We will re-open the work as soon as possible once the temporary construction scaffolding is no longer visible.”

The scaffolding that is invading the view of Meeting is being used in the construction of two residential towers that are located across the street from the museum located at 22-44 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, New York City. Stay tuned for updates on the installation’s reopening.
