James Turrell: A Retrospective – The Naked Edition

By Benjamen Judd

Buy Tickets

Normally, the only nude to be found in an art gallery would be the ones framed and hanging on the wall. But at the National Gallery of Australia this April, spectators and artistic connoisseurs alike will be able to get their kit off as part of a special Nude Tour as part of their latest exhibition, James Turrell: A Retrospective.

For two nights, April 1 and April 2, visitors to the National Gallery of Australia will be able to experience art in a way that (most of us) never have before – in the buff.

Organised by the artist himself, the nude tour takes Turrell’s philosophy towards light to the next level. Stating his belief that “we drink light through our skin”, participants are literally invited to “drink in” Turrell’s work.

With a selection of work curated from 50 years of creative endeavour including projection pieces, built spaces, holograms, drawings, prints and photographs – even if it weren’t going for the opportunity to take a first date to next level pronto, this would be one of the most memorable exhibitions of the year.

James Turrell; A Retrospective is now showing at the National Gallery of Australia until June 8.

Naked tours of the exhibition will take place on April 1 at 530pm and April 2 at 7am and 730pm.
