This event has ended.

"Red Drawing/White Drawing/Black Painting" relates to an important site-conditioned permanent commission by the Indianapolis Museum of Art, unveiled in October of 2008 in honor of the museum’s 125th anniversary. This commission is Irwin’s first permanent indoor installation at a museum. In "Light and Space III" 2008, Irwin created a 60 x 60 foot screen framing a series of white floor-to-ceiling scrim panels with fluorescent lights mounted at right angles in a non-repeating, grid-like pattern. The installation encompasses museum goers in a tunnel of light as they move between the panels and the three main escalators of the museum.
