Robert Irwin

Double Blind

July 5 – September 1, 2013

The US artist Robert Irwin will present his new installation Double Blind in the Secession’s main gallery. The work is a response to the properties of the space, a way of working for which the artist has coined the term “site-conditioned.” Double Blind is one of only a few site-conditioned installations that Irwin has realized in Europe and the most recent opus in the artist’s long-term engagement with the themes of perception and experience, with light, aesthetics, and questions of reality and illusion.


Robert Irwin, born in Long Beach, California, in 1928, lives and works in San Diego, California.
