Robert Irwin First Museum Exhibition
Next Upcoming Date:
Join us for the FREE, public opening reception of ROBERT IRWIN: SITE DETERMINED! Enjoy appetizers and beverages on the museum plaza and come experience this new exciting exhibition.
ROBERT IRWIN: SITE DETERMINED is the first museum exhibition dedicated to the creative process of one of the most significant American artists of the postwar generation. The visitor is invited to explore four decades of Irwin’s outdoor environmental projects through rarely exhibited drawings and architectural models. Site-determined art, Irwin has explained, “draws all of its cues (reasons for being) from its surroundings.” This exhibition promises insights into Irwin’s working process as he developed aesthetic responses to such cues, including his Window Wall on the CSULB campus, Central Garden at the J. Paul Getty Center in Los Angeles to his most recent site-determined work, Untitled (dawn to dusk) in Marfa, Texas.
This exhibition is organized by the University Art Museum, CSULB, and is curated by Dr. Matthew Simms, Professor of Art History, CSULB.
