Phenomenal, is an exceptionally beautiful exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in San Diego. It is open for a few more days (until 2/5) in the San Diego buildings, but is closed in the La Jolla location. The exhibition is an opportunity to see the stars of the California Light and Space movement. Downtown is a work by Doug Wheeler who was recently profiled in the New York Times, as well as outstandingly displayed work by James Turrell, Robert Irwin, Larry Bell and others.
The opportunity to see an Irwin acrylic disk, not lit by the 4 lights that are normally used, but rather simply and perfectly solely by natural light from the skylight above is memorable.
Coming up in San Diego, again in all 3 of the buildings is Isaac Julien: Ten Thousand Waves, an exhibition we saw and thought was great when it was in Miami.
