Published for the exhibition "Aisthesis - The Origin of Sensations: Robert Irwin and James Turrell at Villa Panza," Robert Irwin & James Turrell: Villa Panza offers a fascinating look at the ways in which Irwin and Turrell's careers forked away from each other despite obvious similarities at the outset. Irwin and Turrell were both commissioned in the early 1970s by Guiseppe Panza to create site-specific installations in his villa in Varese, Italy, and from that common point they each took widely varying paths of exploration into the realm of visual perception. Villa Panza thus shows the rendezvous of the two artists in 2013, their work meeting again for the first time in 40 years.
