#Throwback Thursday: By the time this photograph was taken, Robert Irwin had began to leave the studio as a painter in order to expand the role of art from an object into something that could be experienced as perception, shadow and light. We hope you can visit his current exhibit, Dotting the i’s & Crossing the t’s, before it closes this Saturday.

At 510 West 25th Street, Pace presents Robert Irwin’s iconic acrylic columns—the last works he conceived prior to abandoning his studio practice more than fifty years ago. Rising from the concrete floor and stretching more than fifteen feet towards the skylights above, the nearly transparent prisms warp the surrounding air and space. The columns are the completion and realization of an idea conceived in 1969. We hope you can visit these works for yourself, now on view until October 20th.

Reblog of the day! Be sure to listen in and stop by our opening of Robert Irwin: dotting the i’s & crossing the t’s: part II TONIGHT at 510 West 25th Street.
It’s the week before Labor Day, the week on the calendar during which we all wish the fall art season would hurry up and start so that we can have new exhibitions to look at and to think about. So in an effort to help you be ready for the big autumn shows, all week MANPodcast.com will feature programs that prepare you for what’s coming up over the next few weeks and months.
First up: The great Robert Irwin! In the spring, Irwin showed new work in the first of a two-part exhibition at New York’s Pace Gallery. The second part opens at both of Pace’s NYC locations — uptown and in Chelsea — on September 6. In its announcement of the shows, the gallery also released word that Irwin is working on a commissioned, permanent installation for Buffalo’s Albright-Knox Art Gallery.
Irwin, who turns 85 just after the Pace shows open, was the guest on Episode No. 26 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast. Irwin doesn’t give a ton of interviews, but after talking with him I wondered why not: He was smart, energetic, witty and reflective about work from throughout his career.
