Robert Irwin Illuminates Sprüth Magers Berlin

A new exhibition of sculptures and lighting fixtures.

For over 60 years, Robert Irwin has illuminated the viewers awareness of their senses and surroundings. Known for his unassuming light sculptures, the contemporary American artist blurs the boundaries of art and architecture by freeing his work from the traditional boundaries of the canvas.

Sprüth Magers is showcasing a new exhibition of sculptures from Irwin’s storied oeuvre. The event marks the artist’s second solo show at the gallery’s Berlin location and features two bodies of work — from his ethereal lighting artworks to several monolithic sculptures made of transparent colored acrylic.

Irwin began tinkering with light bulbs back in the 1970s, where his site-conditioned fixtures played off the color studies made by the late-great, Josef Albers. Like an artist using a paintbrush to layer on pigments, Irwin builds unique compositions made of layered metallic gels that mirror those used in theatres for stage lights.

By using commercially available objects, the artist produces a familiar, yet novel effect that enchants the viewer as they interact with the changing degrees of light for any given space. The exhibition will be on view at Sprüth Magers Berlin until March 26, 2022.

Also happening in art, the Noguchi Museum has partnered with Objects of Common Interest.
