James Turrell: A Retrospective is coming this summer, to be exhibited concurrently at three museums! This is super exciting. I love Turrell’s phenomenological light installations. They are very difficult to install and exhibit. Not to be missed!

Jeremy Deller’s retrospective at the Hayward Gallery in London was a brilliant, daring move by curator Ralph Rugoff. I missed this show at the Philly ICA last fall (and it seems like NYC museums missed this opportunity). The show has continued on, however.

More Deller: The Guardian picked Joy in People for the sixth Best Art Exhibitions of 2012. Deller will represent the UK at this year’s Venice Biennale.
